"The Amaranthine Ocean, lying to the east of Thedas, is a massive body of water plagued by terrible storms, as well as sea creatures. According to Antivan legend, however, a few daring sea captains have made the crossing... and found an untouched and verdant land. Universally referred to as "Amaranth" in these tales, it is said to be completely uninhabited by any civilized race. Indeed, the descriptions attributed to these captains suggest the land is almost a paradise, completely devoid of creatures larger than a small bird.
Legends regarding Amaranth are questionable. One story suggests that a group of Old God cultists departed for the land aboard a flotilla of ships late in the Storm Age. Another suggests that several groups of settlers sponsored by Free Marcher merchants left from the island of Estwatch in the Blessed Age. Still more claim the same is true for several pirate lords of the Felicisma Armada. All such tales end the same: with the expeditions never being heard from again."
