The Slot is a long bay or inland sea in the south central Siccus Badlands. It lies between the island of Gorr and the Siccus mainland. It is called The Slot as it is much longer (roughly east-west) than it is wide. It runs from approximately Stone Town and Hawkshead in the west to Messahmuk and Na Ghitan in the east. The Slot is a fairly well protected body of water, and is a major commerce route. The winds are primarily out of the east, making the westward journey down The Slot ("running The Slot") quite easy, but the return ("beaten by The Slot") quite difficult.
