Spateswale is a river that at one point housed Lady Cadence's houseboat, Riverdrift. It was mentioned that this river is the most direct path to Ravagog, which is the capital of the Ogres' lands. The water is described as dark and choppy. This river has many tributaries, that are all equally, if not more, choppy. It can be noted that this river is home to pannoniasauruses, and if you are on a boat riding the river, you will get wet, a houseboat is necessary.
