The Desert River Frobber was once one of the most widely circulating newspapers in the Desert River Province.

In Mumberbur of 947 GUE, the editors of the Frobber were reported to have been kidnapped. The main office was closed and the magical printing presses brought to a halt. All attempts to revive the Desert River Frobber had met with failure. The buildings and the presses themselves were haunted, under the control of some invisible evil spirits until the Nemesis was conquered in 949 GUE.
