The Sea of Snakes is a large inland sea, largely enclosed by the landmass of Ishkrond. It was named for the many large sea serpents that inhabit its waters. Despite the dangers posed by these serpents, numerous ships ply the waters of the Sea of Snakes for trade among the various nations. Many of the major Hudresh population centers exist along the shores of the Sea of Snakes, or along the banks of rivers emptying into this sea.
Many islands, small and large, exist in the Sea of Snakes, and according to legend some are inhabited by gods. Ishmod is said to have been shipwrecked on one of these islands in his youth, where he learned sorcery and the secrets to immortality as a consort of the Sea Witch.
