Merior, also called Merior by the Sea, is a small fishing settlement on the Scimlade peninsula between Sickle Bay and the Cildein Ocean in Alland, Shand. A road connects to Shaddorn in the south. Garth's Pond can also be found here.
The eastern anchorage at Merior (on the sea side) has no breakwater or dock, and is too cramped for trader ships. The town is described as stagnant, rows of shuttered cottages and a near-deserted fish market, and clay charms protect the fishnets from the mischief of iyats.
