Silent One was the first of the Four Lakes, the others being the Shimmerer, Mirror of the Sky and Lake of Cloud. A Spire-Clam dwelled at the bottom, and the bowl-shaped circle of forested hills around the Silent One caused dramatic echoes in the area. Red-Ringed Goblins resided in colonies around the Silent One.
In the Third Age of Flight the Four Lakes were exploited by mire pearlers, the paradise of nature transformed into a city and the traditional lifestyle was lost. Some of the webfoot goblins left the Four Lakes and founded Fifth Lake Village at the Farrow Ridges.
