Word of the Day
Sunday, July 1, 2007
Geome (proper noun) — Geome River — A river in the middle-east of Onweald; it empties into a fen near the city of Kharole, where Chariss's family lived when Jamieson Drake showed up and killed them 16 years before the story opens

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender created the name Geome River from the Old English word Geomrian (long mark over the e), which means "to lament" (please read much symbolism in that name and take note that the river empties into a fen next to a destroyed and dead city)

Word in a Sentence: In the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, the Geome River stretches between an inland sea and the Foetid Fen.

Your turn! Gimme something sad and foreboding and dark and dreary!
