Haunted Crater Lakes
The five bodies of water known as the Haunted Crater Lakes lie northwest of Slipcove. Thought to have been formed by celestial objects that fell from the heavens hundreds of years ago, the area is the alleged domain of ghosts from other worlds. Amberose Ysilde (N female halfling expert 2/wizard 4)—a respected sage and astronomer who lives in semi-retirement in her cottage in Rumbutter—is convinced that the otherworldly meteorites that formed the lakes came from the distant planets-turned-asteroid belt known as the Diaspora. According to Ysilde, the ghostly remnants of that ancient celestial apocalypse rode fragments of the planets to Golarion and now haunt the crater lakes their impact created. Ysilde has made it known for years that she will aid and bankroll an investigation to the lakes, but so far all have steered clear of her offer.
