Guadalupe River

The River is played by our backyard beauty – the Guadalupe River. At times serene, at others a monster – prone to massive flash floods it kills on a near annual basis -- n D&D it represents both of those characteristics, as well as the passage of time and the changing of the seasons. It is the quintessential Texas Hill Country River in the heart of Texas’ most scenic setting.
