The Shining Stream was a river in eastern Tethyr that was the primary tributary of the River Ith.[1]


The Shining Stream began in the Snowflake Mountains and poured into the River Ith. It was fed by Swimstar Creek near Mount Noblesse.[1]

Though it meandered more than would be expected, it had a strong current. It was deep in most places, but there were several exceptions where it could be forded.[1]

The river formed the western and northern borders of County Morninggold.[2]


While most of the river was in Tethyrian territory, its headwaters in the Snowflakes were within the barony of Carrelath in Erlkazar, a garrison of troops from Erlkazar defended them.[3]
