Witcher Wiki

Sodden is a former kingdom, but now simply the name for the area around the Yaruga river between Cintra, Brugge and Riverdell. In the aftermath of the first Northern War, Sodden was divided between Nilfgaard, which assumed rule of Upper Sodden and the Northern Kingdom of Temeria, which assumed rule over Lower Sodden.

After the Peace of Cintra, Temeria annexed the entirety of Sodden.

'They're heading for the city of Brugge. So the only sensible direction to escape is east.'

Milva glanced at the Witcher, who refrained from comment.

'And that's where we're headed, east,' Zoltan Chivay continued. [...] Then we plan to march along forest tracks until we reach the hills. Turlough, then the Old Road to the River Chotla in Sodden which flows into the Ina.
