Falador Swamp are a large swath of wetland formerly located west of Falador, the capital of Asgarnia. The area extended from Lake Crystalmere near Taverley to the South, reaching near to Falador's western wall until stopping near the Dark Wizards' Tower to the South. They are seen only in the first RuneScape novel, Betrayal at Falador.

The swampland was a key defensive point for Falador and much of Asgarnia. Navigation through the swamp, especially for large military forces, was nearly impossible. The paths through which travel were safe were kept secret by the White Knights and Asgarnian government. During the War of 164, the swamps were a point of heavy conflict between the White Knights, Falador City Guard, and the Thorobshuun - Garagorshuun goblin tribes of the north. They played key roles in the Siege of Falador and the Taverley Massacre.
