Softsand is about a four-day journey on foot from Brightwater.
Temples to Camden, Ungween, and Roga. Lots of oysters, they do pearl farming there. Roga has a unique tree there that grows sets of seedpods. These do not sprout if planted, but when separated and worn around the neck, they are sympathetic to their host and each other. As long as both hosts are alive, both seeds will remain whole and shut. If a host dies, both pods split open. Sailors with families like to stop in Softsand to pluck a set of pods so both they and their loved ones will be sure the other is well.
The ruler of Softsand is called the Lord of Pearls by some.
