The Deathbend River is part of the lands along its south fork which King Elhokar found for Kaladin that reverted to the crown at the death of its Brightlord, who had no heir.[1]

Dalinar indicates to Kaladin that the lands are not as large as some, but that it is his now.[1]

Kaladin inquires as to whether there are villages on this land, to which Dalinar replies as follows:

"Six or seven; one town of note. The river is one of the most consistent in Alethkar. It doesn't even dry up in the Midpeace. That's on a good caravan route. Your people will do well."

–Dalinar to Kaladin[1]

To this, Kaladin responds that he doesn't want the burden.[1]
