Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #83
Mar 24th, 2023
Location: About 40 miles southeast of the Slagfields (#82) along the Gata Tele Ley Line, 25 miles north of the coast.
Population (approx.): Unknown
Brief: The final landing spot of Gata Tele on Ceannar is in a narrow uninhabited valley of the Flattop Hills almost directly south of Overlook (#8). Centuries ago, rainfall collected in valley, then was bathed in the Ley Line, producing water of unusual clarity and properties. During the fall of Ta’arnan, a death-aspected druid, specializing in poisonous growths, fled a battle to the north, wandering into the hills. Near-death and delirious, they found the pool and, in their haste, to exploit it, somehow introduced just a touch of Corruption to the small lake. The water remains clear to this day but the entire bed of the lake and surrouding terrain is covered in a strange thick tangled unrecognizable growth. What it is, does or, if possible, wants, is unknown.
Geography: Growth can be found in the triangular-shaped wilderness region bordered by the Flattop Hils and the ocean (the end points marked by The Haunted Spires (#11) to the east and the County of Airontir Taun (#49) to the west). The lake sits in a narrow valley on the western slopes of the eastern spur of the hills, about 25 miles north of the coast. Growth hugs the valley walls about the lakeshore but does not crest any of the surrounding ridges hence can only been seen from directly above. The Gata Tele continues underground, re-emerging in the ocean about 5-10 miles offshore of the Spires.
