Riven, named the Fifth Age (D'nisev 5, sev [5], meaning 'Age 5') by Gehn, was the fifth Age that was written by Gehn. It was also one of his most successful. He lived on the Age for a part of his life after his son Atrus trapped him there until he managed to write Age 233. Riven played an important part in the life of Atrus and was also the home of Katran.

Originally Riven was one large island, which soon sank into the water and split up due to the Age's instability. The five main islands in the year 9462 DE (1607 BCE) were:

The number five[edit]

Five is a very prominent number on Riven and it occurs many times. Many occurrences were intentional and caused by Gehn.

  • The name has five letters.
  • Its symbol is the D'ni number five on a star with five sides.
  • It split into five islands.
  • There are five Rivenese Guilds.
