Pathfinder: Legacy of Fire
Northern Cascade and Lake Forns
In the northern arm of the Brazen Peaks, melting snows feed into the broad Lake Vorn, which cascades down a series of falls known as the Viper’s Tongue—for the way it forks in two a little more than halfway down—to reach Lake Fors in the foothills. The Northern Cascade, as it is known, is a natural wonder,
but of little interest to the inhabitants of the Brazen Peaks beyond that, since the land around the lakes is rocky and rugged, the peaks high, and the trails difficult even in good weather. The falls make Lake Vorn impossible to navigate except by portage, so few bother to try and float vessels larger than small canoes on it. Furthering the upper lake’s isolation is the tale of the lake monster Vorndra, a creature that supposedly dwells in the lake’s depths and seizes and devours intruders who linger too long in its territory.
