The Shallow Sea is a great inland body of water, surrounded by low liffs and sharp crags. It is connected to the Great Sea solely at the southeastern corner by a single canal that extends southward like an ever-narrowing finger as the eastern coast pinches inward. Tall spires and jagged pinnacles of stone rise up randomly from the surface. They glimmer whitely, covered with guano, for great flocks of all spices of birds have made the spires their homes. Sea serpents may occassionally be seen rippling amongst the spires. Legend claims a tall man could walk across the sea’s width without every wetting his hair. No doubt many have drowned trying to prove the legend. The western shore of the Shallow Sea belonged to the dragons.
