|This article is about Nazairi duke. For other persons with the same name, see Adam (disambiguation).|
During his reign, Adam attempted to regulate the flow of the Sansretour River to his likeness, in order to irrigate the Nazairian part of his land – not keeping in mind that the river flows through countries other than Nazair as well. Even though it likely was not his intention, it caused the olive groves of the de la Croix family to be devoured by a plague of armored scale insects at the eastern neighbor.
Because of his attempts, water flooded a great number of villages, private estates and even Arthach, an elven summer palace. These experiments were what gave the Sansretour Marsh its current shape and put half of Crane Isle permanently underwater. They also created an unpleasant bog to the north of Beauclair where none can tread in true safety.
