To the east lies the Bay of Sarat which opens into the Wide Ocean. You know not what lies across that Ocean, but you do know that the barrier islands of Jansenez harbor pirates and raiders from the north.

Calindrost itself is a coastal plain. Cotton and corn are gown in abundance and much of its wealth lies in the trade of clothe to the northern lords. Large fishing fleets have recently been hampered by pirates and rebuilding them has been a problem because wood is hard to come by.
