Ships that survive getting sucked into the Maelstrom are said to travel to another world when under the cover of darkness. Great stories tell of islands existing which are covered in the crushed ruins of the hulks that have been sucked to the deeps of the Maelstrom. Yet more stories speak of the magical rock from the centre of the maelstrom can bind an island to a person who lives the crush of the Maelstrom.
