The Slumbering Tsar
The Missing River
The Missing River runs from the Swill Hole, down a subterranean channel to the Lower Falls and out into the Dread Swamp below. After pouring into a wide collection pool, the subterranean river winds northward beneath the Harrow Lanes until exiting from the lower cliff face. The initial drop to the caverns below is 40 feet. From there the river drops another 60 feet over the length of its course before reaching the Lower Falls. The river is rough and swift in its course (travelling 60 feet per round) requiring a DC 15 Swim check. The river varies from 10 to 15 feet deep. For its entire length, the tunnel’s ceiling averages a height of 20 feet above the water. Even with the stalactites that hang prominently throughout. All along the river a stone walkway, carved from the native rock, follows its course. This walkway is 5 feet wide and 3 feet above the level of the water. It is damp and slick requiring a DC 12 Acrobatics check to balance if running or charging.
