The Strid River is a large river that forms most of the boundary between Cyrodiil and Valenwood. It rises in the West Weald to the southeast of Skingrad and flows west-southwest along the edge of the Gold Coast before emptying into the Abecean Sea south of Anvil. To the south, the river borders the Valenwood regions of Malabal Tor and Reaper's March. The city of Arenthia is located on the southern bank of the river.

The Strid is an important trade route to the interior of the continent, and has therefore occasionally been preyed upon by pirates.[1] The jungle-covered islands in its treacherous estuary provide ample locations for criminals to shelter out of the reach of the authorities, including Horseshoe Island and the infamous Tempest Island, which features a warren of subterranean caverns.[2][3]
