The Lake of Fear was the boundary between the regions surrounding Ta'Illistim and Ta'Vaalor. A free ferry ran across the lake every half hour or so, funded by King Tyrnian of Ta'Vaalor.

Embarkation points for the ferry were the South Dock (adjacent to Fearling Pass and thus Ta'Vaalor) and the North Dock (at the southeast end of the Sylvarraend Road and thus adjacent to Ta'Illistim). Each dock bore a sign, written in the elven language, which would bear the time until the next scheduled departure.

The ferry captain was known to accept bribes (rumored to have been 5000 silvers) to make the rowers row faster; however, it is uncertain as to whether or not the passage was actually accelerated by this.
