The Sarkotakh Islands

The Sarkotakh Islands are a series of islands in the middle of the Anemos Ocean – south of Kel’ission and northwest of the Feng Empire. Known for their harsh tropical environment, most of these islands are currently uninhabited, with a couple notable exceptions such as New Baator and Umbra. What few inhabited locales there are in the islands are generally aided by some sort of racial affinity for the extreme climates or some other means of mitigating the dangerous conditions, such as the tieflings of New Baator’s famous resistance to fire or the creatures of Umbra’s ability to fade into the Shadowfell.

The islands are known for having a disproportionately high concentration of Trileukon ruins, leading many scholars to believe that it was actually Sarkotakh and not Kel’ission that the Dominion originated from. While the sheer number of finds per square mile has been documented to be nearly thrice that of Kel’ission, the generally inhospitable wildlife and rocky shores of much of the islands make it difficult to produce many fruitful runs. Compounding the issue are pirates who patrol the Anemos Ocean to ambush any salvage teams who make the trek.
