Encyclopedia > Tarim

The Tarim River (Mandarin Dayan) is the principal river of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in the People's Republic of China.


Formed from the union of the Aksu and Yarkant, it flows in an eastward direction around the Taklamakan Desert. It drains into Lop Nur, a series of salt lakes. Its total length is 2,090km.


It is shallow, unsuitable for navigation, and because of its heavy silt load, forms a braided stream near its terminus. It gives its name to the arid Tarim Basin.

Tarim Ravenmane (2162 words)
Tarim was born the youngest child of Hakim Ravenmane; the Shaman Adept of the Tree Ghost Tribe of the Old Forest and Lyssa a mysterious woman from another tribe that Hakim had fallen in love with and married.
Tarim was still by far the weakest male adult of the tribe, but he was able to use his wits and intelligence to his advantage enough to gain respect.
Tarim has always looked up to his older siblings especially Aragrym who is much bigger and stronger than he is. Aragrym had often been the barrier between the other village children and him, protecting the “runt” as he calls him sometimes.
