he wealthiest city in the region is Triathe, directly on the coast of the great lake of Pearlen, and many species of aquatic creatures, both magical and not, live there. The city is ruled by Queen Rydia, who at eighty years old has ruled over an unprecedented time of prosperity. Enormous towers and minarets reach over clean streets, and a slow moving stream runs through the wealthier areas of the city toward the lake. The city itself is fortified on all sides by enormous gates, guarded day and night. The lake is said to be inhabited by rarely seen creatures that are as large as boats. Most magi say they are probably just leviathans that have opted to stay in freshwater, but some claim they are an enormous, undiscovered species of water-dwelling creature.
