Explorers of Barsaive
The Serpent River passes through all of Barsaive, winding its way from the far north to the Death’s Sea in the south. Four miles wide at most points, the Serpent can only be crossed by magical means or in a well-designed ship. The Serpent’s banks contain the most fertile soil in Barsaive, and countless villages and towns dot the long, wide river valley.
The reptilian t’skrang, who live in underwater towns and sail the serpent in their riverboats, control and conduct most of the trade on the river. Many t’skrang have trade agreements with the dwarven Kingdom of Throal and work to promote unity among the people along the Serpent. Other t’skrang captains turn pirate, using their ships for raiding.
