Nestled away in the Blue Flame Isles archipelago, Bilgewater is a port city and is home to serpent hunters, dock gangs, and smugglers from across the known world. Here, fortunes are made and ambitions shattered in the blink of an eye. For those fleeing justice, debt, or persecution, Bilgewater can be a place of new beginnings.

Shadow Isles

This cursed land was once home to a noble, enlightened civilization, known to its allies and emissaries as the Blessed Isles. However, more than a thousand years ago, an unprecedented magical cataclysm left the barrier between the material and spirit realms in tatters, effectively merging the two and dooming all living things in an instant. Now, a malevolent Black Mist permanently shrouds the Isles, and the earth itself is tainted by dark sorcery.
