Menagerie Coast, Version 20.1

Map of the Menagerie Coast

The Swavain Islands is the name of an archipelago located to the south-west of Wildemount, off the shores of the Menagerie Coast and north of The Shattered Teeth.[1] Most of these islands are managed politically under the leadership of the Clovis Concord, with the exception of the separatist Darktow Island, which is run by the pirate union called The Revelry, under the leadership of The Plank King. (Darktow Isle was the home port of Captain Avantika.)[2]

The indigenous people on this series of islands were called "Ki'Nau" and are thought to have been granted the blessing of Uk'otoa at some point in the ancient past.[3] There are three abandoned temples of Uk'otoa across the region.[4]

Inkclaw reefEdit

Inkclaw reef is the reef between Rumblecusp and Urukayxl.[7] The reef is about 20 feet, 15 feet, ten feet below sea level, some of them barely breaching the surface. There are colorful reefs that are full of vibrant life, all sorts of manner of sea creatures and fish going through, jutting pieces of stone and broken wood. There are other ships, the remnants scattered across the reef, and have been overgrown.[13]
