THE GUARDIAN ROCKS

The Guardian Rocks are a group of rocky upthrustings from the land on either side of the Mashdai River, just above Chrondra and below Lake Tribell. They are called the Guardians because the rocks also lie in the riverbed at that point, making the river too shallow for ordinary deep-keeled boats, and therefore safe from invasion. Only the Avennorian ships were able to pass upstream of this point.
