The White River runs the length of Harkenwold, varying from 200 to 300 feet wide, and up to 10 feet deep. Two ferries cross the waterway – one near [[Tor’s Hold]], the other close to Easthill. Both are flatboats large enough for a horse and wagon, secured by thick hawsers. No one tends the ferries; travelers must haul themselves across.
The White River is home to the Reedfoot Halfling Clan – six keelboats scattered up and down the watercourse, each home to a large and boisterous family. The Reedfoots are allies of Dar Gremath, and help the resistance by carrying messages and spies the length of the vale. The leader of the clan is Willet Reedfoot, an olde, charmingly roguish fellow who earns a comfortable living storytelling in the villages close to the river.
