Watercross is a small city on the fringes of Caithwood in Taerlin, Tysan. It is just up the trade road from Quarn, on the eastern shore of an inland lake. A massive land bridge of Paravian centaur construction spans the river here, with mossy stone pilings and elegant arches.

This city did not exist until roughly Third Age 5650. It is not a chartered town or one fully sanctioned under old law. It is an "upstart settlement" that had five inns to handle an increase in waterborn barge traffic on the rivers caused by events of that time (as told in Grand Conspiracy).[1] The steadings are inhabited by the families of innworkers who had married rivermen and drovers passing through.
