are a small group of islands in the Rhotano Sea
, not far from the southern tip of Vylbrand
. The habitability of the area differs from island to island, with some seen as luxurious getaways
, while others serve as stopovers for pullers
or even host isolated prisons

, however, it is said that the mist will lift under certain conditions.
