Rydern is a small town of roughly 750 people, a mix of Humans, Elves, Dwarfs, Half-elves and Halflings. The town is in the crook of Opal Lake and the Shiindar River. The river flows from Opal lake north to Talon Bay in the Northern Sea and flows out of the southern edge of the lake through the Hydraandar Forest to the south emptying into a vast marshland. There are three more smaller settlements all within 2 or 3 days travel from Rydern: Joon, across the lake and to the west in the foothills of the mountains; Pliny, up the river to the north; and Tern, down the river to the south.
