The southern reaches of the Keshian archipelago are shrouded in a protective mist that confounds the most skilled navigators. Unreachable save to those deemed worthy by the goddess Nymi, tales of the Dream Kingdoms remain the stuff of modern fables.
Wind-powered Kingdoms ships are significantly faster and more maneuverable than the larger bireme and trireme vessels used by Kesh. Naval battles between Kesh and the Kingdoms are rare only because the swift Kingdoms vessels turn and run when able, using magic to fill their sails when the sea is still.
While the mist frustrates the more bellicose Injau, several islands maintain trade relationships with the Dream Kingdoms.
