Thieves & Kings
Deep in the heart of the Echo Wood, lies the beautiful, hidden lake surrounded by groves of silver birch. Known as Silvershadow Lake, it is considered one of the truly fey places within the Echo Wood. A clear mile wide, and stretching more than nine miles north-south about six miles east of the Raven’s Ridge hills, the lake quietly dominates the center of the forest. It is filled and emptied by the Mythwater, the central stream of the forest.
Rumors claim that the lake is jealously guarded by dryads, sprites, pixies and other fey creatures who protect the forest and the trees sheltering around its edges, assisted by a band of reclusive satyrs. They’ll barely tolerate the barbarians of the Wolfsmane tribe, but resent the woodcutters and trappers of Thornkeep, and more than a few greedy huntsmen and trappers who practice their trades too close to the lake simply vanish.
It has since been revealed that these fey are ruled by a Lady of the Border Court, Sylessi, the Lady of the Lake. She and her nixie companions protect and defend the region, leading a small army of sprites, pixies and other fey creatures. She is an ally of Tiressia and her dryads.
