The foul mire was located just south of Goldenfields, and its waters were fed from the River Dessarin. This also made the bog a convenient body disposal site for killers, thieves, and dishonest Waterdhavians.
There were many rumors of buried treasure in its murky waters, but fortune hunters needed to beware the denizens who haunted the dark marsh, like the sewerm, a large water snake, which hunted the foul waters of the Stump Bog; as well as will-o'-wisps; mudmen; and other undead creatures.
Stump Bog was named after the many rotting stumps rising out of the green algae-covered waters.
