The Red Swamp is a combination of wetlands and river delta area where the River and the Gulf converge.

Population

The Red Swamp is the home of the Reptilians and most reside in it.

A few human traders visit the border towns and trade with the Reptilians. Some poachers also attempt to harvest sweetwood, but this can be risky because the Red Brotherhood kills those that it finds.

Wildlife

The Red Swamp is home to many wading birds, such as herons, egrets, ibises, cranes, and bitterns, though populations fluctuate with water levels. The swamp is famous for its amphibians and reptiles such as toads, frogs, turtles, lizards, snakes, as well as the abundance of alligators; it is also a habitat for Black Bears.

In addition, the Red Swamp has many species of carnivorous plants, including many species of Utricularia, Sarracenia psittacina, and the giant Sarracenia minor var. okefenokeensis.

Dangers

  • The Red Brotherhood take a dim view of all intruders. Most are killed on sight.
  • Toads can get rather large and can become a danger to nearby communities.
  • Jeggets, especially the clawed variant can be very aggressive.

Resources

  • There is a large amount of seafood that is collected by the Reptilians.
  • sweetwood is also harvested by the Reptilians, but often not in the amount desired by humans.
