The Moonshae Isles are in the western portion of the Sea of Swords, near where that body of water leads to the uncharted expanses of the Trackless Sea. The nature of the archipelago that forms the Moonshaes is paradoxical: The seemingly simple and primeval beauty of the isles’ landscapes belies the complicated political power struggle taking place there.
The climate of the Moonshae Isles is something that only a lifelong inhabitant could embrace. The same ocean currents that keep the temperatures from dropping below freezing too often in the winter months leave the land damp and cool in the summer. Rainfall is a constant companion, and fog shrouds both the land and surrounding waters in the early morning and late evening.
