The Chaotic Sea is the body of water that surrounds the Ynesleaic archipelago to the south and east, and is considered much more dangerous than the Bitter Sea due to its powerful maelstroms and sea beasts. Because of the volcanic activity of small islands in the sea, it is considerably more hotter than the Bites and is covered with a thick haze. Because of this haze Akaviri forces are sometimes able to sneak up on the Ynesleaic archipelago, something the Echmer have always hated. Hagreger’s journals state the seafarer got lost in this sea for a considerable amount of time, and was badly burned when a volcano island set fire to his ship.
