The Elic River is a large river that runs through the western portion of Luric, through the city of Illiena. It begins in the mountains on the northern border of Luric and pours into Lake Nel about halfway through the region on the western side. Little trade is done over the river, due to its small size. Some older Lurites and some religious citizens call the river by an older name, "The River of Guilt". This name comes from a Luric myth on the creation of Illiena in which a man who, overcome with guilt, commits suicide by drowning himself in the river.
