General Porthmos was the leader of Taldor's semi-legendary First Army of Exploration which destroyed Goroth Lodge in 37 AR and mapped the Sellen River as far as the elven sanctuary of Sevenarches in the modern-day River Kingdoms.12
The general is still one of the most famous men in Taldor's long history, as evidenced by the countless places which have been named after him. These include the Porthmos River, Taldor's central waterway which flows past the capital, Oppara, the Porthmos Gap between the northern and southern range of the World's Edge Mountains,3 the Statue Garden of Porthmos in Oppara,2 and Porthmos Prefecture and Porthmos Prison in eastern Taldor.4
