The Shimmering Sea is a vast expanse of pale, shining water. So large, in fact, that it would more correctly be called an ocean, its name being a historical artefact dating from a distant time when these terms were more poorly defined. It touches islands and continents, stretching between civilizations. And its waters have long served as host to trade in valuable goods.
The Shimmering Sea extends from the continent of Munuth
in the north, south to the continent of Labell, and east to the continent of Astoor. It contains many islands, including the Vala Dokh Chain.
