The Tideless Isles is an archipelego to the east of the Dread Empire of Praes. many corsairs and pirates reside within the isles, raiding and looting.
Captains from the failed navy of Dread Emperor Malevolent III defected and became Pirates in the isles.
During the Praesi civil wars preceding The Conquest Corsairs looted the city of Thalassina before retreating to the Tideless Isles. The Calamities then travelled to the isles and made a deal with the Pirate Queen, forcing her to cease attacking praes and only take a limited number of other ships.
