Valdorian Age - Rising Power on the Frontier
Centuries ago, Prince Symkin claimed the lands to the southeast, which surrounded three small lakes, as the Royal Preserve. Here stands the Prince’s Retreat, a sprawling lodge where the ruler of Elweir may go when he wishes to get away from the city.
The prince also provided leases to very wealthy members of The Fifty so they could also build ‘retreats’ near the lakes. A number of very wealthy members of The Fifty did build palaces around the lakes.
Since the rise of Bandit Lords, Symkin’s Lakes has stood abandoned. Prince Summerset has repeatedly requested Duke Lothar Coeur to send soliders to garrison the area, but so far the Duke has ignored these requests and has kept his forces concentrated around the banks of The Serpentine (Cynthian Plains).
