The Shattered Sea
A chain of islands off the coast of the Aubrian mainland, it is named for the Venturi, the seven virtues that these religious zealots live by. Previously Dragnian, they are now ruled by a man known as the Shuul who presides in Torus. The city is built in the shadow of a 1000’ half-buried sphere of rock that cannot even be scratched by man’s tools. He has dispatched “sages” from his Toran Brotherhood around the isles to research its history and discover means to conquer the mainland. He is secretly a powerful dark wizard and is using his shaven-head minions to root out secrets and tap into the power of the Torus and the mainland.
