The Rod of Seven Parts
When a past Age’s Blessed Emperor tamed The Midland Sea, not everything fled to The Iron Sea. Some of the infection settled in the Fingers, a collection of large rivers stretching northward from the sea. Over the Ages, the region has been rechristened the Fangs, mostly in honor of the monsters (Sahuagin in particular) who now riddle the area. These days, all but the most seasoned adventurers avoid the region. Travelers on land will travel weeks out of their way to avoid the Fangs, and ships with inexperienced crews will sometimes sail south of Omen when sailing between Shadow Port and Concord, rather than taking the much shorter route across the Fairwind Sound, just to avoid the Fangs altogether.
