The swamp helps keep the number of fools in town low.
  — Halruaan saying.[1]

The Kilmaruu Swamp was a stretch of swamp and marshland located in southeast Halruaa.[1]


The swamp was the site of a ruined city. Undead constantly roamed the swamp and aging ruins, making appropriate defense forces in nearby towns and cities a necessity.[1]

The Kilmaruu Swamp was a popular destination for adventurers and treasure-seekers. Both groups hoped to stumble upon lost treasures buried by the murky swamp waters.[1]
