Bay of Gems
Light gives the Bay of Gems its name. They gleam in the black depths, specks of cold ruby fire and soft diamond white, like submerged stars, far out of human reach. Their nature is unknown. Some say that they are the wispy souls of the thousand mutineers drowned by a mad Falme of the Concordant Era. Others believe them to be Nonman treasures. I have even read a pamphlet in which a Spires scholar argues that the lights are glowing fish, like the Gleam-Whale. I believe them to be beautiful.
-from The Travels of a Young Bard by Charmaine
Bay of Gems is a body of water in the former colonies of Zapandi with an odd phenomenon of multicolored lights that shine at the bottom. This is used by sailors going into the bay as a form of navigation, and is often considered one of the great wonders of the world.
