A Broken World
Home of the Merfolk, these islands are called sinking because when the tide is high a good many of them disappear. This causes a problem for creating homes but the Merfolk have built simple flouting homes that use old ship anchors to keep them from drifting away. These homes are made from drifting wood or pieces of sunken ships.
These Islands span across the south, separating the dangerous southern waters from the rest of the world. Most do not travel here except for religious reasons; it is seen as a holy area.
There is one main village or more like a series of temples and homes clumped together. Here the chief resides with high priests and other highly viewed families. Not much trade happens here but ships that come to try and gather shells in the shallows pay their respects to the chief as to not cause any difficulties. as long as this ritual is kept the merfolk do not interfere with travelers.
