The Basilisk Isles are a group of islands off the northern coast of Sothoryos. To the south lies Zamettar, to the east Ax Isle and to the southwest, the Isle of Toads.[1]

The mud-and-blood towns of the Basilisk Isles teem with escaped slaves, slavers, skinners, whores, hunters, brindled men, and worse.[2]
