Ūla the river giver

A forgotten goddess of the high River dynasty, Ula may have been an ancient river troll or perhaps a powerful naiad. What little is known of her worship is contained in the linguistic remnants hidden within the names of the two arms of the river which flow out from the umbra of Torenwœl, Sh'ulla, which runs west through Vali to the sea, and Tulla, which goes south terminating in the swamplands of the lizard folk. There are also a handful of short inscriptions that seem to provide a list of possible epithets: the river giver, sister of the west wind, protector of Uama, mother of the sturgeons, guarantor of sacred vows.
