Misty Lake

The enchanted home of the wizard Malduc. It was surrounded by the perilous Shrieking Marsh and the Steaming Path.

Malduc kept Gawain and Erec prisoner at the Misty Lake, torturing them daily, until Lancelot led an expedition to rescue them. Lancelot’s men were able to cross the lake and enter the fortress with the help of the giant Esealt the Tall.
