    Default The river shibboleth

    Here's my entry for this: an atlas-style map concerned with the great river Shibboleth. An excerpt from my notes reveals a bit more of its history and the myth surrounding it:

    3. River flowing west and north across most of the northern Sammaean continent and the Kharkharadntid badlands, including the lands of ∆thios, Lidea, Nírach, Paraiya and Mharokk, and serves as a border, of sorts, between civilised lands and the Penumbrally tainted region of the Umbra Solare.
    The riverís main course flows for some 4,500-miles before emptying in the Sea of Mharka.
    Though it shares a name with one of the Two-and-Twenty Demiurges, it is unknown if the two are linked in any way, though in the ancient myth of ∆thiosi nomads, the river was created by the tears of Teroth (daughter of the Demiurge Neith) after she was raped by Volupis (son of the Demiurge Serapis).
