Lake of Scales
The unsettled areas of Shark Island are known for the wide variety of dangerous wildlife that inhabits them. Large herbivorous dinosaurs can nonetheless be a serious hazard for humanoids infringing on their territory. This is especially true for the Lake of Scales, which hosts herds of ankylosauruses, iguanodons, and stegosauruses near its shores. The lake also feeds the Greenscale River, which is of sufficient depth and breadth to allow smaller sloops to navigate it from lake to sea. The islet in the middle of the Lake of Scales is reportedly littered with ivy-smothered Ghol-Gan ruins, allegedly the burial sites of several long-forgotten high priests of that lost empire’s dreadful alien gods. Several intrepid parties have sought out these hidden tombs, though none are known to have returned.
