The Maze islands are off the southeastern coasts of Gorejun. Maze is not some generic word applied to this group of five large islands and thousands of smaller islands, and innumerable rocks jutting from the sea floor. The countless islands, shoals, and reefs form in all sense of the word, an oceanic maze. There have been few pilots who have made it through the area. Ships that have made it through suffered horrendous crew losses from natural causes like disease and starvation, and by brazen attacks by cannibalistic tribes, reef giants, sea serpents, and other beasts from the depths.
