Glittering Sea

The oceans hold many treasures: sunken ships laden to the gunwales with treasure, deposits of rare and exotic minerals, and a host of treasure from tales and lore. The most abundant, glittering treasure the seas hold, however, is the bounty of fish that inhabit their depths. No waters are more abundant than the Glittering Sea, nor any harvest more rich than the massive shoals of sardines that migrate to these waters twice a year between their breeding grounds. So vast are these shoals that their wake is an oily trail that glistens silver in the noon sun with the discarded scales of the hundreds of millions of fish traversing the currents. Fishers, both humanoid and animal, follow these shoals and, in a strange union, reap this bountiful harvest.
