Are there gillmen in Lake Encarthan?


Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion


It's a big lake. Are there any known settlements of gillmen in/on/around Lake Encarthan? If there aren't any in official products, I'll make something up, but just curious if any published reference exists.

I guess the answer is no one knows.

I would guess no -- my thought is that Gillmen and Locathahs are salt water. I could see water Fey such as Nereids in Encathan, of course.

Going off the Pathfinder Tales, there is one living in Lake Encarthan.

Gillmen can live anywhere, provided that they can take a bath at least once per day -- so members of that race should be able to reach and live in any reasonably warm lake if they want to. Locathahs would need to wade upstream in a river, most likely.


There are explicitly river-adapted gillmen, so it doesn't seem implausible to have a colony in Lake Encarthan. It doesn't sound like (the one in the Pathfinder Tales aside) that there are any existing supplements that go into any more detail. That's cool--I'm good making stuff up.
