The West Quays of Laketown(n, e and s)

The water laps up against the wooden quays, which surround the city of Laketown. The old wooden boards used to create the pier have turned a dark grey, from being exposed constantly to the raw elements. Pitch has been poured over the wooden supports which hold up the city, keeping the wood from rotting away. As you look out, away from the city, the dark blue waters of Long Lake ripple and murmur as they flow under the pier.
There is water to the northwest, west and southwest.
The only obvious exits are north, east and south.
