The Sea of Sorrows is the gulf surrounded by
- Kryta (to the north),
- The Tarnished Coast (southwest),
- the southern Shiverpeak Mountains and Sparkfly Swamp (to the east),
- the shattered remains of the peninsula of Orr (to the south).
- and the Ring of Fire Islands (to the southwest),
Orr was destroyed in the Cataclysm and most of it sank into the sea in 1071 AE. Once named the Bay of Sirens, the sea was renamed the Sea of Sorrows after the destruction of Orr and the glorious city of Arah.
