The Yarmouk is a desert river that sustains life in the city of Gidea. Deep springs feed this ancient river from the White Cloud Mountains. This water is used for irrigation along the northern regions along the river. As it winds southward, the river sustains some tropical plant life and some species of crocodiles.
Even further south the river dumps into a flat region that was an ancient lakebed that has dried up from the extreme heat. Pillars of salt and minerals jut up from the crusty layers of salt.
