Twin Forks was a town situated at the juncture of the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers; it's best known for its riverboat gambling. It has sprung up over the years and has become a major trade centre for the river. There is even an annual merchants convention held there.(Eclipse at Noon)


The Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers don't currently meet up, to get to the Mississippi River, you'd have to travel the Ohio River First.
