The Great Swamp was filled with moss, cypress trees, and zalantar trees and home to giant leeches, toads and snakes. It served as the homeland of intelligent species like lizardfolk, bullywugs and tasloi. It was always muggy and full of biting insects. Noxious vapors came up through the water and hung above the ground in great clouds of yellow, brown, or green gas. Some of these gases were poisonous or carried diseases, such as cackle fever and mindfire.
One of the trade exports of note from this region was Rethild-weave silk.

The Great Swamp was home to numerous tribes of lizardfolk, bullywugs, and tasloi, as well as giant leeches, toads, and snakes. The black dragon Valraxxath dwelt in the center of the swamp in a ruined city. Shambling mounds could also be found in the swamp.
