Lake of Steam

The Lake of Steam is a region in South Faerûn. Despite its name, the Lake of Steam is a quasi-inner sea connected to the Shining Sea.

With the Shaar on the east, it separates the Shining South from the rest of Faerûn. On its shores is a collection of free cities, mainly on the northern and western sides. The southern side, by contrast, is a collection of kingdoms collectively named the Border Kingdoms. At the center of the lake is the Arnrock.

As of 1479 DR, the Lake of Steam is about half the size it was before the Spellplague. The Arnrock is now in the eastern half of the sea rather than the center, and the eastern portion of the sea ends about thirty miles short of the town of Derlusk, where Derlusk was once on the southeastern coast of the sea. A large lake now separate from the main body of the sea lies near the ruins of Innarlith. The Qurth Forest is a small fraction of its former size, and the Duskwood is completely gone. Suldolphor is also in ruins.
