Riverton is a port city in Korias, Tysan. It sits on the trade road between Hanshire and Middlecross, at the end of the Riverton Narrows. The Ilswater River feeds into the Narrows here with a deep estuary at the river delta. The land between Riverton and Middlecross is mostly flat, with farmsteads and cattle pastures.

Riverton has a walled inner city, with the original citadel built up over seventeen centuries of commerce.
