The Fals river flows with deep brown currents twisting between it’s banks. The fish here grow fat for the dinner table on this rich river water. Falsrigde and Whitehale sail the surface of the river with barges and fishing boats. The treeless banks of the Fals river are steep sloped and rocky, with some flood plains along the wide shallow areas. The most common barge on the river is the covered ore barge. Reaching sizes of a hundred feet long and filled with tons of unrefined ore from the Lorridges’ smaller mines without furnaces. They can make the trip down river to Mitrik in a week or more. The upriver trip is an exhausting job that can last up to a month. The crew will have to push the barge, trudging the sides of the deck with long poles or be towed by lines of men though the swifter narrows. Before reaching Mitrik the river widens and grows deep. Here near the Crook Stream is where the great mansion barges of the rich moor. Mitrik itself is situated only a couple of miles from a swift moving section of river called The Juggler. This part is strewn with boulders the size of keeps that only submerge during the most extreme spring floods. So treacherous are the currents some river men hire special guides just for these few miles of danger.
