The Reef that Lies to Mapmakers is located in The Loop region. It is named for the constantly changing shape of the reef; some believe the reef itself is alive, while some believe it is due to geological instability. Most of the coral formations of this reef lie below the surface; only the unusual formation known as the Spires of Grief is large enough to house its own city. Byakko the White Tiger, one of the legendary creatures of the east, is also known to live deep within the reef.

The city of Spires of Grief is located here.
