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.[1] 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.[2]

Notable Locations

  • Dalen's Closet: 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.[3] The resort is nice but not busy, and features a beach of hammocks next to a wide, single-story tavern.[4]
  • 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.
