In the southeastern expanse of Edhelviel is an area of more than a thousand islands. This island group is called Azrinn'nûr, or the Rings of Azrinn by most non-elven speakers.

Azrinn'nûr and outward for a hundred miles in all directions, is subject to unusual weather. Sometimes these are strong gales and even typhoons. A survey of the area by the druid Eclipse was undertaken in 1709. She claims that the violent weather patterns of Azrinn'nûr are caused by warm currents coming north from the Mephigax where they merge with Nautrek's icy waters. Others say the area's unusual weather, numerous navigational hazards, and islands in rings, is a clear warning not to enter a place of the gods.

In one area of Azrinn'nûr is a great whirlpool that the sea elves named Níngoth. Currently functioning as reverse flowing whirlpool, it draws water up from the depths, serving as the exit point for ships and creatures traveling the Sea Tunnel. There are times when it flows in the opposite direction. The last time it did this was in 1078. During a tropical storm, part of the unusual weather system of these islands, a Vorangrith convoy lost half their number in this area. These lost ships ended up traveling well over 3,000 miles to the southeast, just off the coasts of Enkii Jusk, where they started anew at Tyk-Culten.
