In the mythos of the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms, the Sea of Swords is bordered on its eastern side by a diverse region containing a wide assortment of terrain and ecologies ranging from mountains, forests, swamps and plains to communities of every size and description as well as castles, ruins, dungeons, caverns and more. Within this expanse is an area with the Cloud Peaks to the south, the Wood of Sharp Teeth to the east, the Sea of Swords to the west, and the prosperous, powerful city of Baldur's Gate to the north.
