Storm-battered and inhospitable, the Cold Coast faces the wrath of the White Sea daily. The towns of Tuckborough, Motley and All Hallows Bay are the region's main towns, the latter being a well-known mainland foothold for the pirates of the Cluster Isles. The people of the Cold Coast are a hardy bunch, predominantly farmers and peasant stock whose families have lived there for generations. There are few who would choose to settle down on the barren Cold Coast.

The Cold Coast is a strip of land and sea to the south-west of Lyssia, and south-east of The Cluster Isles. This is the place where Drew Ferran was kept away from danger, living with Tilly and Mack Ferran, along with their son, Trent Ferran. Villages are the main architecture here.
