There is one passable harbour on the northeast coats called Gambit harbour. Gambit is named for the bets that locals take on whether the sand currents will beach any moored vessels. Smaller pirate vessels dock there regularly for illegal trade, but they do not stay because Borkin is too close to Karst Navy and the Sahuagin. The biggest resource is a local crustacean that resembles a cross between a crab and a lobster called a borkin. They are delicious. The locals delight in calling them Borkin borkins and they are harvested for miles when the tide is out. There is a tall lonely keep on the highest point of the low island called Wayland’s folly, which acts as a lighthouse. When Sahuagin attack the islanders flee to either Gambit or Wayland’s folly
