Lake Encarthan is one of the largest and most highly traveled bodies of water in Avistan. The nations of Druma, Kyonin, Lastwall, Molthune, Nirmathas, Razmiran, and Ustalav all share the lake's coastline, and the port cities of Caliphas, Kerse, Tamran, and Thronestep each serve as their nation's capital, no doubt bolstered both economically and militarily by their strategic locations on Encarthan's banks.
The lake contains numerous creatures, including merrows and scrags.
Skum tribes live in the lake, and make items out of fishgold, the unique red gold found in its depths.
The strongest military force on the lake is probably the navy of Molthune, based in Eranmas and primarily concerned with blockading Tamran, the capital of its rival, Nirmathas. However, other Encarthan powers view the navy with suspicion and the Molthuni leaders are keen to deploy their naval force solely against Nirmathas to help allay these fears.
