River of Death: History and Rumors

Long ago before the Great Cataclysm, it was known as the River of Whispers. Records described it as a scenic and mighty river. However, after the Cataclysm, the river turned into what it is now'a dreadful, putrid, sinister river that spreads decay throughout the island of Alibor.

The River of Death is the most infamous landmark on Alibor and is said to be a place rife with evil and, as the name suggests, death. It is called the River of Death due to it spreading of death and decay toward anything around it and because persons who have come into contact with the river's murky waters sickened and died.

It is also said the river protects the pygmies from destruction and elimination, for indeed, entire armies have invaded the jungle and never been seen or heard from again. Just as they are protected by the river, so too do they protect the river, and they will defend it to their very deaths.
