An Empire Forgotten
Lake Nen is situated in the north east corner of the Nentir Vale at the base of the Winterbole Forest. The forest surrounds the lake on its western, northern, and eastern sides. The lake itself is approximately 50 miles wide (west to east) and 25 miles across (north to south). A small island on the far east side of the lake is where the new section of Nenlast is located, which has become the main portion of the town in recent years.
A large stone temple rests in the center of the lake on an island. It is said that the temple has been there for hundreds of years, and that it’s best left alone. Every now and then foolish adventurers head out to explore the massive temple never to return. Those who use the lake for swimming, bathing or drinking have always had the good sense to stay along the water’s edge, as it is rumored that the lake is cursed. A few people have reported seeing ghosts in and around the lake, but these stories have been dismissed as hearsay.
