The Ribbon is a river which joins the Yaruga near the fortress at Bodrog. To the west of it lies the forest of Brokilon in Verden, and to the east is Brugge. It is considered to be the boundary to Brokilon. Northern soldiers dare not even approach it.
|“||'I see you're afraid of the dryads. But Brokilon only begins on the far bank of the Ribbon. The river is the border. We haven't crossed it yet.'||”|

|“||The Ribbon was shallow but very overgrown. Before they had reached the centre of the current, Pegasus was dragging long plaits of waterweed.||”|
