Gaurgoroth's Claw, so named for the legend of its creation, is a small grouping of offshore islands in the sea between Nepris and Marduran. The islands themselves are quite large and although deep-hulled boats cannot get too near them, small skiffs can and regularly do for various reasons, a notable one being the excellent pearl and seafood diving to be found in the relatively sheltered waters in the lee side of the Claw.
