The Four Lakes was a large settlement in the Second Age of Flight and the Third Age of Flight. The region consisted of the four lakes around which were found the webfoot goblin settlements. The four lakes were called Silent One, Shimmerer, Mirror of the Sky, and Lake of Cloud.
Role in The Slaughterer's Quest
During the events of The Slaughterer's Quest, Keris Verginix travelled to the Four Lakes to speak with the Great Blueshell Clam. She wanted to find out more about her father, Twig. After meeting the clam it sent her on a voyage to the Free Glades to meet her grandmother Maris and to seed the South Lake with a new Blueshell Clam.
Third Age of Flight
Several centuries into the Third Age of Flight, the Four Lakes settlements grew larger and became a small city. It was exploited by mire pearlers and the Great Blueshell Clam died. Their traditional way of life was lost and those longing for the purer life of the Second Age of Flight founded Fifth Lake Village in the Farrow Ridges. This also allowed them to defend the new Great Blueshell Clam of Farrow Lake.
