Jeltharo says, "White River was founded ages ago, before recorded time. It was built at the narrowest point along the White River itself, to make passage to the Northern Marches easier. Naturally, a town grew up here. Most of the citizens are either minor wizards or merchants, dealing in trade with other cities in Meridell."

—Conversation with Jeltharo, White River

The town of White River is the second town in Meridell. White River is split up into two portions, one on each half of the titular river itself. While the town is being terrorized by Zombom the southern half of the city, which contains Mipsy and the second potion seller, Sildairm, is inaccessible.

Inhabitants Edit

Jeltharo is the first citizen of White River that is met, at the entrance to the city. He explains that the wizard Zombom raised the bridge that connects the two halves of the city over the river.[1] Mipsy, the second party member, is met in the second half of White River.

Horxas

Horxas

Horxas says, "Welcome to my tavern! Although it's not much of a tavern these days, what with the bridge and all... We can't even get any ale. So there's not really anything to drink. But if you want a room for the night, it'll be 35 gold pieces."

You say, "What can you tell me about this town?"

Horxas says, "White River's a peaceful town. The bit with the wizard showing up was more excitement than we've seen in all my lifetime! Normally, we just have a few wizards who quietly practice their magics, and the tradesmen who pass through frequently. They ship all manner of goods through here, although business has dried up a bit, now that the bridge is unusable."


After defeating Zombom:

Horxas says, "Oh, thank you for defeating that horrible wizard! Now the bridge is usable again, and we're finally able to get shipments of ale! My customers will be so happy! Since you defeated him, I'll let you rent a room at a discounted rate, only 25 gold pieces."

Sildairm

Sildairm

Sildairm says, "Welcome to my shop. I sell speed-altering potions, but they won't come cheap. Anything guaranteed to make you move faster -- or make your enemies move slower -- will come at a hefty price! I also have healing potions, but when you buy my speed-altering potions, you won't need those much!"

Enkarra

Enkarra

Enkarra says, "You're from Trestin, are you? That means the bridge must be open! Oh, thank the stars. I was afraid I'd never be able to visit the north again."

Adelan

Adelan

Adelan says, "Dear me! The bridge is stuck in the raised position, and is unusable. Curse that wizard for doing this to our town!"

You say, "What can you tell me about the wizard?"

Adelan says, "His name is Zombom. I've known him for years; he was actually a student of mine some time back. You see, I'm a wizard myself. But I hadn't seen him in several months, when he appeared and cast that spell on our bridge. I don't know where he learned such powerful magics; I can't even figure out how to break the spell. I fear that only his demise will cause the spell's effect to end."

You say, "Where can I find the wizard?"

Adelan says, "It's only a rumor, but I've heard that he's taken up residence in an old, ruined tower on an island in the sea northeast of here. The only way to get there -- unless you can swim like a fish, or fly like a bird! -- is an underwater cave that runs under the mountains and comes up again on the island. I'm not sure exactly where it is, though. I think it lies where the forest meets the mountains, to the north."

You say, "What can you tell me about the town?"

Adelan says, "White River was founded as a river crossing centuries ago. Now it's home to a small community of wizards -- of whom I am one -- and traders who live here when not out trading. It's never grown to be a particularly large town, but we like it small. Actually, the walls were built to both protect against floods from the river itself, and to keep the community small."


After defeating Zombom:

Adelan says, "Well, I can't thank you enough for defeating Zombom, though I wish it didn't have to be this way. I suppose he'd been driven mad by tapping powerful, forbidden magics... or something like that."

You say, "Zombom said he failed his master, and he mentioned your name."

Adelan says, "His master, eh? So he was not behind this by himself? That makes a certain kind of sense, I suppose. The only other person I can think of powerful enough to put Zombom up to what he did would be... but it can't be." Adelan hesitates for a moment, and looks around suspiciously. "The king's advisor, Ramtor, was rumored to be a powerful spellcaster... but I can't imagine why he'd want the bridge frozen up. The last I heard, the king had taken ill... but this far from the castle, who knows what's going on there?"

Yauvis

Yauvis

Yauvis opens his eyes and yawns. "Eh? What do you want? You woke me up! I'm trying to catch some shuteye here! Why don't you go do something more useful, like kill that wizard who froze the bridge?" Yauvis turns over on the bed and goes back to sleep.

Jeltharo

Jeltharo

Jeltharo says, "Welcome to White River. Normally I would extend every courtesy and hospitality to you that our humble town could afford, but ever since the problem with the bridge, the whole town's been in an uproar."

You say, "What problem?"

Jeltharo says, "Well, everything was fine, until one day a few weeks ago. The town was going about its business as usual, when suddenly there was a crack of thunder -- from a cloudless sky, no less! -- and a wizard appeared out of thin air. He claimed that he would 'rule all these lands,' and then cast a spell at the bridge. The bridge magically lifted itself up, and despite all our efforts, we've been unable to force it back down. Now nobody can cross the river!"

You say, "Who was the wizard?"

Jeltharo says, "The wizard was an elephante, dressed in robes, and with a mad gleam in his eyes. He frightened the wits out of me, I must say. After he cast that spell upon the bridge, he cackled maniacally and then disappeared into thin air. I've no idea where to find him, though, or how to make him reverse the spell."

You say, "What can you tell me about this town?"

Jeltharo says, "White River was founded ages ago, before recorded time. It was built at the narrowest point along the White River itself, to make passage to the Northern Marches easier. Naturally, a town grew up here. Most of the citizens are either minor wizards or merchants, dealing in trade with other cities in Meridell."


After defeating Zombom:

Jeltharo says, "Oh, thank you so much for defeating that terrible wizard! Now the bridge is working again, and life around here will get back to normal. If you have any questions about the town, just let me know."

You say, "Tell me about the lands to the south."

Jeltharo says, "The lands to the south are vast, and mostly uninhabited, until you reach the Eye of Meridell. It's actually just an ancient lake surrounded by a ring of mountains and forest. There's a city on the edge of the lake, though I've never been there myself. But there's a great deal of land between here and there, including lots of hills and swamps. I'd be careful going out there, if I were you."

Bolar

Bolar

Bolar says, "I haven't had a drop to drink in weeks... ever since that dang wizard showed up. Horxas keeps saying he'll get some ale soon, but I don't know..."


After defeating Zombom:

Bolar says, "Wow, thanks! You defeated that wizard, and I can get back to drinking! Cheers to ya!"

Mipsy

Mipsy

Mipsy says, "Oh, you startled me! I'm sorry, I'm a bit jittery these days, what with all the fuss from the bridge being stuck. I'm glad it's opened up now, though, and I've heard it's all thanks to you!"

You say, "What can you tell me about this town?"

Mipsy says, "Oh, I don't know very much about White River. I haven't lived here very long, you see; in fact, I'd only just moved in when the wizard attacked and got the bridge stuck. So I haven't even met most of the people who live here, since they've been trapped across the river."

You say, "What do you do?"

Mipsy says, "Well, I'm a wizard, as you may have guessed from my robe. Not a very good one, mind you... I only know a few simple spells and other tricks."

You say, "Would you like to join me in adventuring?"

Mipsy says, "Me?? You want me to join you?" Mipsy jumps up from her chair excitedly. "Of course! Of course! I've already got my handy wizard's wand and my robes, and that's all I'll really need for a life of adventure, isn't it? Let's get going!"

Mipsy has joined your party!

Tebor

Tebor

Tebor says, "We haven't been able to get much in the way of supplies ever since the bridge got locked open, but we're not out of everything. I have a few healing potions, some dangerous Flare and Blast potions, and even some weapons and armour. Take a look, and tell me what you want."


After defeating Zombom:

Tebor says, "I'll be able to get more supplies now that the bridge is back in order! Thanks! You can have a 20% discount on anything in the store."

Inn Edit

Horxas says, "White River's a peaceful town. The bit with the wizard showing up was more excitement than we've seen in all my lifetime! Normally, we just have a few wizards who quietly practice their magics, and the tradesmen who pass through frequently. They ship all manner of goods through here, although business has dried up a bit, now that the bridge is unusable."

—Conversation with Horxas, White River

The inn of White River is run by Horxas who charges 35 gold pieces for Rohane to rest for the night. After defeating Zombom, however, he will discount his price to only 25 gold pieces.[2]
