In Chaldea, sailing the Great Sea is a treacherous undertaking for any fool who doesn’t understand astrology. The Great Sea is an amorphous metaphysical body of water with no cardinal points, no north and south, no east and west. Leaving the sight of land is akin to blindfolding one’s eyes and stumbling into an endless desert. Navigation equipment such as compasses, sextants, and charts are useless in the Great Sea. Navigators must rely on astrology to guide their path or fortune to bless their fat.

Constellations are friends and guardians to sailors—knowledge of how to speak their language is the only hope to having them point the way, for the stars of Chaldea have much to say to those who can hear them.
