Technically part of the Arcadian Ocean, Desperation Bay is a bay off the west coast of Garund. It is bordered to the east and south by Sargava and to the north by the Kaava Lands of the Mwangi Expanse.
As well as the Sargavan settlements of Eleder and Crown’s End, the villages of the Ijo fisherfolk stand on the shores of the bay. The Ijo are plagued by attacks from Ombo pirates.
In 4643 AR the pirates of the Shackles sunk a Chelish fleet in Desperation Bay. It is rumored that the wrecked fleet is now inhabited by sahuagin. In 4699 AR, a sahuagin outpost in a cove near Eleder was routed by the Sargavan Guard.
The Bay is also the location of the island of Smuggler’s Shiv.
