Where is Starmere Lake, you ask?
Yeah. So did everyone. I was thinking Everclear Lakes myself, and in fact, the Everclear Lakes would make quite a nice spot for Ales and Tales.
But Starmere Lake is a bit more remote. It was a good thing Lennidhren set out early to find it – several hours ahead of the event, in fact! Soon she called for help from kinmates Cressley, Dolongi, Laraan and Fillarion to scout out a good spot, and we all decided that the northernmost island on the lake was suitably picturesque. But it is certainly not an easy place to find! So we had escorts helping folks get there from Adso’s Camp, and captain Melanie summoning folks there, and with everyone working together we managed to collect quite a crowd on that island.
