Valashmai Sea

The Valashmai Sea is a body of water in Golarion's southern hemisphere.

Geography

The Valashmai Sea lies off the southern coast of Tian Xia's Valashmai Jungle, connecting the Okaiyo Ocean to the Embaral and Obari oceans. It also separates Tian Xia from Sarusan[1] and borders the Antarkos Ocean.[2]

Ecology

The sea is renowned for its dangerous inhabitants, including a nation of adaros who refer to the sea as the "Womb of Storms" and worship a creature known as the Tempest Wife.[3] Krakens,[4] sahuagins,[5] and siyokoys[6] also inhabit the Valashmai Sea.

The seas are also notoriously turbulent, with reports of whirlpools too large to view from end to end[1] and frequent low thunderstorms just above the tips of large icebergs.[2]

These traits give the Valashmai Sea a reputation as one of Golarion's most treacherous seas, and sailors who grant passage across it either stay close to the coastline or charge large sums to cross it.[1]
