(Abyssal realm)
Ruler Aldinach
Ecology Vast desert of ruined cities
Denizens Gharros demons, assorted demonic creatures associated with deserts or scorpions, chaotic evil souls
Description A large desert seeded with deserted cities, adjacent to the Blood Clefts and ruled by the demon lord Aldinach.

One of the infinitely myriad realms in the Abyss, the Sea of Whispering Sands is the home of the demon lord Aldinach. It is an enormous desert dotted with ruined, decrepit cities.[1]


The Sea of Whispering Sands was once the realm of Aldinach's older sister, Areshkagal. However, Areshkagal was ousted when her sister stole the realm from her some millennia ago, forcing her into the abyssal wasteland of the Blood Clefts. Now Areshkagal's armies constantly make raids into the Sea of Whispering Sands, trying to reclaim it for their demonic mistress.[1][2]


Due to its current master's scorpion form, demonic scorpion-like creatures inhabit much of this realm. Gharros demons are Aldinach's main servitors, so they are found often torturing, killing, or bullying lesser creatures. Souls of beings that were once chaotic evil are also found in the Sea, performing mundane tasks like building defenses and forging weapons.[1][2]


The Sea of Whispering Sands is a vast desert wasteland, with the clear sweep of the dunes inhabited by demonic version of desert menaces from the Material Plane. The endless seas of sand are irregularly broken by deserted-looking, ruined cities.[1][2]
