Ilnuvarin is a massive glaciel river that flows out of the north, dividing the continent of Verosia. As Thothgald has melted away it has created a great frozen sea in the north that feeds into this massive river. The orcs and ogres of this northern land named the river Ilnuvarin (Which means "Ice knife river"). The Ilnuvarin often freezes over in the north, though the water still flows beneath it and as the ice sheets shatter they thunder downstream often causing the river banks to flood in the north. The river is so wide, though, that it rarely damns up. In fact, in the hot seasons glaciers have been known to break loose of the ice sea and flow down river, sometimes getting as far south as Riverport before breaking up. The river is far wider than any other river, and except for flow of currents, it would seem to be a great lake to most who encountered it. The far side is often not visible from the bank. In many places it is over twenty miles wide. As the river moves south it divides the continent in two. To the west is a great mountainous forest land. To the east is a wide tundra, rolling plains and smaller forests. As it flows past the borders of the Gelvani realms and Rona its name changes to the Tuar-Seylvarin, the Great Forest River. As the galciel river runs southwards its first great divide is where the Drey-Sylvarin splits to head westward. This river divides Shanothyr, northern most of the Gelvanmyr, from Northern Verosia. This marks the dividing boundary of Northern Verosia and Southern Verosia. The greater force of the river continues south wards for another 180 miles where it divides again. Here another branch turns south-west and divides the forest of Shanothyr from the forest of Mirivia. This is the Nol-Seylvarin, which is narrower, and flows quickly over many falls and rapids as it rushes towards the Bay of Brynlinia. The Tuar-Sylvarin is somewhat reduced by this branch, and its waters grow deeper and clamer as it continues south. This makes the river more meneable to boats of all sizes. Thereafter the Tuar-Seylvarin continues south for hundreds of miles, separating the Gelvani forests in the west from Rona in the east. Just past Mirivia the river splits again. The greater branch turns sharply west and seperates Mirivia from Metanmyr and Moar, and maintains the name Tuar-Seylvarin. It is also relatively slow moving and as such makes river travel far easier. The eastern branch is slightly narrower, but even deeper and slower as it turns towards the coast, where it empties out into Vas-Draga. It is called the Shanin River and seperates Rona from Gand. Its calm waters make it ideal for travel and trade, owing to the prosperity of its many coastal villages and towns.
