Shamal is a port city on the Bay of Gifts on the northern coast of Marquet. It is a major trade center as well as a popular tourist attraction. The city is bustling and, as is to be expected in a tourist town, everything is a little more expensive than Vox Machina are used to. The beaches of the Bay of Gifts feature white sands and clear, glittering, turquoise-colored waters. Hundreds of ships fill the bay, from small fishing vessels to massive cargo ships.
Notable Locations Edit
- Dalen's Closet is a beach resort in Shamal, run by a halfling named Guath. This was where Vox Machina stayed during their Winter's Crest vacation in "One Year Later..." (1x95), and where Percival and Vex'ahlia's destination wedding was to take place. The resort is nice but not busy, and features a beach of hammocks next to a wide, single-story tavern.
- A small boutique in the city was where Pike had her hair beaded and colored blue.
- One of the T-shirt designs offered by Geek & Sundry features Dalen's Closet, with Vex and Trinket chasing Vax on the beach.
- Shamal is the arabic word for "North" or "the North Wind", as the port city is located in northern Marquet.
