Sitheachdon by the River is located at a fork in a river, making it a very useful location for travellers from afar. It is easily accessible and as such has become one of the largest and most influential villages among the Shcots.
When first discovered, Sitheachdon was considered a mysterious place, because of several strange occurrences. Since then it has become a very busy place, its culture unique. While the majority of the inhabitants are Shcots, there is also a large Fairlan population, quite a few Landons, and several Garlants. There is even one or two members of the Sholan living in Sitheachdon.
Sitheachdon was named for the mysterious occurrences surrounding its discovery and founding, its name coming from an ancient Shcot word for "Mysterious" or "Faerie-Like". The second part of the name comes from its location near a river.
