Sea voyages are full of tales with treasure maps or uncharted lands. Some sea adventures revolve around mapping island chains or other sea terrain. Others involve stealing valuable charts making a variety of terrain features for a bay or ocean. Islands, coasts, under the sea and across the ocean are all places that could contain maps.

There are related Sea Guides for Fantasy Sea Generators and Fantasy Sea PDFs & Books.
