In the RPG
Once the site of a Highborne city, Kel'theril was reduced to a lake in the Sundering, and subsequently froze over in the following years. Many of the city's pillars are partially above the water line, but much of the city is submerged and encased in ice. Lake Kel'theril is now the largest body of water in Winterspring, and the ghosts of the Highborne that died there haunt the lake.
