The Lost Lands
Starting at the coastline of the Sea of Serpents, the Lifting River draws water in and flows uphill through the Northlands. The water remains salty for miles as it rises steadily in elevation until the salt is deposited in huge piles at the Rising Lick. Fauna of all types -mundane and magical-are drawn to the large deposit of salt dunes that rise up out of the water. Most barbarian tribes stay away from the river, calling it “the Devil Water.” The Running Elk tribe has been known to hunt in the area, but only when faced with starvation. Past the Rising Lick, the water turns fresh. The river rises up into the Cragspire Mountains where it runs into a large cavern and feeds a large freshwater lake underground.
