Places of Kalandar:
Kalandar's grounds are flatter and less harsh
to the south and even the woodlands are sparser. At the heart of
the southern plains the watercourses that run through Kalandar
flow together in a basin that is called Lake Lostreen.
When Kalandar was the garden of Coruscant, Lake
Lostreen was the destination of many citizens from all over the
planet, that would marvel at the crystal clear waters and the
surrounding calmness (the lake is named after a Jedi master of
those times who was fascinated by the lake that, when it was his
time to be united to the Force, decided to do it aboard a boat on
the waters of the lake).
Today, it is useless to say, Lake Lostreen is a
very different place. The waters are far from being clear and
crystal clean, for which they were reknowned, now turbid for the
waste that afflicts Kalandar's water dams. Many of the lake's
shores have transformed into swamp areas and in certain places
they have even given origin to a particular type of quicksand
that the inhabitants call sand gorges which are swift and
merciless in engulfing anything that falls in them.
The northern shore of Lostreen is the one still
visible: here, maybe due to the rocky composition of the soil,
the swamps did not form and there is even an inhabited settlement
on the lake's shores made out from an old observation rampart of
the old days that the residents simply call "The Tower of
the Lake". Little more than the usual conglomeration of home
less and clandestine, the only attraction of the outpost is a
tavern, the Talkron, so-called for another Jedi that fell in love
with Kalandar's lake.
