The Nosam River is a relatively short river found entirely within the militaristic nation of Molthune. It begins in the southwest of that country, south of the Backar Forest, and just east of the Trilmsgitt Towers. From there it flows in a generally northeasterly direction, following the curve of the Menador Mountains. It continues south of the Backar, past the city of Cettigne and the capital of Canorate, where it is joined by the Hungry Maw River flowing in from the east. At Canorate it also turns north, flowing to the west of the Shrikewood until it empties into Lake Encarthan at the port city of Korholm.
