Lake Silverstep, so named for the legend that its waters filled the footprint of a great silver wyrm many ages ago, is the cleanest and clearest source of water in the Stolen Lands. Its primary source is from the Gurdin River, but countless smaller rills and streams empty from the
mountains in dramatic cascades along the lake’s eastern shores. With the exception of the mud flats (area Q), the shores surrounding the lake consist of idyllic swaths of nettles, cattails, reeds, and lilies and are home to numerous nixies, grigs, and faerie dragons. These fey are incredibly bashful and shy, and it’s unlikely that any of them will be brave enough to make contact with the PCs—though stats for these creatures can be found in Pathfinder Adventure Path #31 and #32 if such contact is established.
The waters of Lake Silverstep host an enormous variety of fish; the most common are small, thick bodied silver eels—quite delicious and much sought after by gourmet chefs. The fact that dangerous predators often hunt along the shores of the lake, combined with the fact that silver eels are difficult to catch due to their uncanny ability to sense hooks in bait, together ensure that demand for the eels remains high. It’s a DC 30 Survival check to catch 1d6 silver eels over the course of an 8-hour expedition. Although the lake encompasses numerous hexes, only this particular hex counts as a resource hex if claimed by a kingdom.
