The Outlaw's Coves is large chain desert islands located off the Northeastern coast of New Armes. The islands are chalk full of peninsulas, lagoons, caves, inlets, and coves all of which makes for a perfect place to hide out for smugglers, pirates, and black-marketeers. It is also a great place to escape from the Western Marine Corps and hid the secret traveling black market city of Port Nowhere.
Some runic scholars have suggested that the dozens of island chains may have been one large tropic island before, but some kind of magical explosion or great force destroyed most of the Island turning into the desert that it is today. Such power is only possible from a True Rune.
