This beautiful low gradient river flows form the inner Jungle Wilds out across The Maw and finally empties into the Suvan Sea. The Syka River has a series of four seasons to it. There are two dry and two wet that alternate. During the dry seasons, the river is reduced to a mild low gradient stair step of pools that slowly ascend up into the jungles from the sea. During these periods, the river is not navigable.

During the rainy season, the Syka River can flood. Flood seasons are welcome because it replenishes the soils crops grown in along the river near Syka. But it also turns the river into a navigable channel wherein goods can be transported both up river and down river. These are the periods of time where settlers of Syka go deep into the jungle and cut down large trees and float them down to Syka to utilize in anything the wood might be needed for. Syka has woods of course, but in the heart of the Jungle Wilds is where the truly big hardwoods and softwoods are.

The Syka River has an abundance of wildlife. There are fish aplenty in all shapes and sizes. There are snakes, turtles, crocodiles, birds, deer, and predators of all kinds. The river is often considered a travel corridor between the maw and the heart of the jungle wilds so migrating animals come by. Elephants and hippos make the waterway their year round residence, and can pose a danger to visitors.

The River itself is cool, clear, and almost always shaded by the trees that boarder it. Walking its banks can prove to be one of the coolest places in the whole jungle since winds blow inland up its waters from the sea.
