Half-Haul Canal is a large island chain off the coast of Sun's Beacon, in the Brutish Sea. The principal city is called Cannath. It is an important strategic naval position and was fought over violently during the Mage Wars. In the Ages of the Alliance it became an important hub of commerce as well as a popular resort destination. The southwestern-most islands are particularly well-known for their black sand volcanic beaches. During the New Day era, Half-Haul Canal is under the control of Sun's Beacon.
