Trivia & RumorsEdit
- Ashpond is the name of the village of Ashpond *and* the name of the lake that makes up the southern border of that village.
- The village of Lyndon was once part of the larger town of Ashpond, but since the late Third Age the two have become disparate entities of their own.
- Remnants of the once well-appointed structures that made up the older town of Ashpond can still be found buried in the dirt and mud surrounding both Ashpond and Lyndon.
- Ashpond (the body of water) is actually a lake by definition - even though it is called a pond. This is the result of an ages old argument between the two founders of the town; a Dwarf by the name of Gorn Klorgirn and a Human by the name of Siania Northwind. Siania loved the lake and wanted it to be called Silverlake. Gorn would have none of it - insulted that the Human would so dismissively name a lake "Silverlake" when there was no silver to be plumbed from its depths. In his ire, he insisted it was "..nothing but a hole in the groud, a pond filled with ash and soot...". An argument ensued, finally resulting in Siania leaving the area, and Gorn becoming the first official mayor of the town now known as "Ashpond".
