The Stump Bog was a swamp to the east of the hamlet of Rassalantar.[4]


The foul swamp was located just south of Goldenfields, and its waters were fed from the River Dessarin.[5] This also made the bog a convenient body disposal site for killers, thieves, and dishonest Waterdhavians.[3]


There were many rumors of buried treasure in its murky waters, but fortune hunters needed to beware the denizens who haunted the dark marsh,[6] like the sewerm, a large water snake, which hunted the foul waters of the Stump Bog.[2]


Stump Bog was named after the many rotting stumps rising out of the green algae-covered waters.[5]
