The lake of birds

In the eastern lowlands of the country of Nevrast, a vast marshland of reeds and pools had grown. In the midst of these Marshes of Nevrast, the waters came together into a long, narrow lake, whose margins abounded with wading birds of every kind. It was from these birds that it took its name: Linaewen is Elvish for 'lake of birds'.
