The source of the Raiteso River is Lake Raiteso nestled in the southern Hungry Mountains in the north of the Ustalavic county of Caliphas. The river runs nearly due south out of the mountains and, once clear of the mountains, is bordered on its western shore by the Albria Woods. After some 50 miles, the Raiteso is joined by the Droa River, where it leaves the Albria Woods and turns east to flow for about 20 miles until it exits into Avalon Bay at the 'City of the Senses': Vauntil.
Along its banks may be found many craftsmen in small communities plying their expertise and trading predominantly with the rich of the city of Caliphas. The craftsmen include vinters, perfumers and quarriers of the alabaster found in the region.
