The massive river system that runs through all lands of Tellus is also the path that brings the dead to Charon. Most of the smaller river that runs throughout Tellus eventually flow in to the River Styx. Every nation save for Karak Ankor places their dead on barges and sends them down river to the mouth where the river sinks into the earth to where legend said lies the citadel of Erebus. Up and down the river system Charon’s priest, known as Ferrymen protect, guide and maintain these barges on their trip down the river. Since the River Styx is a sacred site for almost everyone no other boats traverse the river apart from those of the Ferrymen and workers building and maintaining bridges, though fishing along the river’s shores is a common practice.
