The Great Swamp of Rethild, also known simply as the Great Swamp or Rethild and Kethid, was a swamp in Dambrath.[1]

DescriptionEdit

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.[1]

One of the trade exports of note from this region was Rethild-weave silk.[3]
