Land of a Thousand Lakes

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Type Regions
Location South of the Great Ice Wall
Ruler The great white dragons
Population Very sparse

The region south of the Great Ice Wall is home to more lakes and ponds than one can count, giving it its name. Many bodies of water are temporary filling up during the warmer seasons with meltwater from the glacier. They also move and the small creeks between them shift often leaving ponds isolated. There are roads and paths are almost non-existant. Neither does any accurate maps of the region exist. This makes travel very lecherous, many explorers have walked for days in circles eating up their supplies. However there is one rule when navigating the region. If one follows a creek downstream one will sooner or later find oneself travelling southwards. The opposite also holds true.

The vegetation is extremely sparse. Most areas often become waterlogged killing those plants that have sprouted there. There are however higher areas above the waterline where thundra-like vegetation grow. Despite the very sparse vegetation multiple white dragons call the region their home and manage to find enough prey to sustain themselves. Apart from the dragons most fauna is small. Mice, hares and small birds are the most common. Anything large enough for a dragon to consider a meal is quickly hunted down.

The land of a thousand lakes

North of the land of the Lampi, the High Moors, you found the much wetter land of a thousand lakes. Stretching all the way to the the Great Ice Wall this large stretch of land is dominated by ever changing waterways and lakes fed by meltwater from the Great Ice Wall. It is also the hunting ground of the great ice dragons nesting in the wall. As you started crossing it you realized your carts would be nothing but a hindrance and you loaded your supplies directly on your mounts, and your backs. Nearing the end of your journey across the wet land tragedy struck you. First one of your mounts were taken by a giant albino snake, the Verschlingen, before it retreated back into it's swampy domain. Then a ice dragon descended upon you blasting you with it's icy breath but chased away by Anton. With the dragon away the wall was before you, and meltwater caves your entrance into it.
