A very large city founded during the reign of the Terrak, named for its location at the mouth of the Serraded river, into the Three Sister’s Bay. Prior to the war, it was one of Selera’s capital cities, and a major seat of trading power. It’a the sight of the famous last stand of the royal family, before finally signing a treaty with a dagger at their throats. It’s been a hundred years since then, but parts of the city are still in ruins from the vicious battle that took place there. This ruined appearance is a misnomer, as Rivermaw is actually a rich port city that manages to keep itself relatively crime free, especially in comparison to Laceron. Travelers will note that the areas closer to the coast are under much better repair, whereas on the outskirts of the city, the poor and middle class create homes for themselves out of ancient stone and makeshift fixes.
The only city still technically under the control of House Terrak, Rivermaw is the seat of the throne…but is controlled just as much by House Raekon. Naturally, the Terrak don’t take kindly to sharing the influence on their only city, and old tensions run deep, here.
