Long Lake is one of the oldest cities in Deladainin, and has been one of the centers of trade for the western kingdoms since the beginning of the Age of Swords. It is situated on the Lion's River, to the west of the Silverlode Mountains, just inside the borders of modern Silva. The forest of Thenregon lies to its south. The city was originally conceived as a defensive settlement, guarding Cry's Pass from eastern invaders, and the keep and defensive walls are still in place and good order.

The city's design is oriented around Cray's Keep, the original castle and walled community placed there by the king of the former city-state of Rahzis. As the western region became safer, and the Silva Compact made the city-state system obsolete, Long Lake has turned into the gateway city for trade to the east. Languionese and Silvan traders use Lion's River to take their goods south to Long Lake, and from there across Cray's Pass and into Lethe. The city's new role in commerce has caused it to grow and become prosperous, and it is commonly considered an inland rival to the Seven Cities.

"Long Lake is forty districts in search of a city."
- Lord Alamand

Long Lake is a massive assembly of people - local humans, dwarves from the Silverlode, merchants coming from Leoncour and Lethe, and countless adventurers, mercenaries, and refugees from Lethe and Volkshire. The city is not overcrowded - not yet - but the districts have begun to take on the characteristics of small independent communities. Many of these districts lie on Long Lake itself, in Great Bay.
