The Bay of Gifts, sometimes called Shammel Bay, is a large bay on the northern coast of Marquet. The bustling seaport city of Shammel is located on it.


The Bay is in a tropical climate,[1][2] and at Winter's Crest the sky was clear, the water was warm, and the sun shone throughout the day.[3] The shore features both white sand beaches and pebble beaches.[4][5] The waters hold coral reefs and the remains of a large number of wrecked ships due to the volume of ship traffic that passes through, and the bay supports a thriving ecosystem of scavengers, pearl-divers, and kelp-gatherers.[6]

Notable Locations
