The Seven Lake Basin
12.7.10 The Seven Lake Basin
The Seven Lake Basin is a great sprawling flatland, dotted with lakes and hills. Each of the seven lakes is named for its nature. Dwarven Mother, the largest, is a warm and flat lake, calm and gentle. Slow fat fish play in her depths, and the waves of the lake soothe the savage heart. To the south is Little Brother, a small lake much like his mother, and as calm and relaxing as she. The eastern edge of the basin is lined by Harvest Moon Lake, whose waters shine in the dark, sometimes reflecting the moons above. Far in the south is Goblinmire Lake, whose foul waters drive off all but the hardiest adventurers. Selkie Lake, in the midlands of the basin, is green and calm. Stories of children lost to the creatures in the waters abound, and many a child goes missing around Selkie Lake in her season. Oldest, and coldest, is Old Crone Lake, far in the north of the basin. The waters of Old Crone are choppy and rough like the sea, and her depths are as cruel. Children who wander in the Seven Lake basin often go missing. Many a mother in many a village and city has known the horror of a child swimming, and then nothing. Who, or what, takes them, is unknown.
