The River Brazia starts in Oredia, near Mt Zetetic. It then flows south into Fondrop and into the Bay of Raktari. Some land around the Brazia has been irrigated, allowing a small amount of farming, and towns cluster around it along much of its route, taking advantage of one of the few good sources of water in the area. These towns mostly trade in the minerals found beneath the dunes, though the dominance of Oredia in these markets means opportunities are scarce, and unemployment is high in these parts. Recently, however, extra government funding has enabled a tourist industry to develop, with opportunities for enterprising locals with a good knowledge of the area.
