One of the infinitely myriad realms in the Outer Rifts, the Sea of Whispering Sands is the home of the demon lord Aldinach. It is an enormous desert dotted with ruined, decrepit cities.1


The Sea of Whispering Sands was once the realm of Aldinach's older sister, Areshkagal. However, Areshkagal was ousted when her sister stole the realm from her some millennia ago, forcing her into the Outer Rifts wasteland of the Blood Clefts. Areshkagal's armies now constantly raid the Sea of Whispering Sands to try to reclaim it for their demonic mistress.12


Due to its current master's scorpion form, demonic scorpion-like creatures inhabit much of this realm. Gharros demons are Aldinach's main servitors, so they are found often torturing, killing, or bullying lesser creatures. Souls of beings that were once chaotic evil also toil at mundane tasks in the sea, such as building defenses and forging weapons.12


The Sea of Whispering Sands is a vast desert wasteland, with the clear sweep of the dunes inhabited by demonic versions of desert menaces from the Universe. The endless seas of sand are irregularly broken by deserted-looking, ruined cities.12
