Red Sea Map

The Devil's Shroud is an area outside the border of the map in Sea of Thieves. Here the environment starts to become very dark and ominous and the water turns blood red.


The Devil's Shroud, also known as The Red Sea, acts as the kill zone, where passing the border of the world map turns the water blood red. The sky clouds over and becomes very dark. Eerie music begins to play as your ship begins to break apart and sink. There's nothing of interest in these regions and when your ship sinks, one of the Merfolk will come to return you back to your ship in safer waters.


  • The Devil's Shroud is what the first Pirate Legend, The Pirate Lord, crossed to enter the world of Sea of Thieves.
  • The Devil's Shroud is known to have once covered The Ancient Isles but for some reason cleared up leaving The Ancient Isles hospitable to life.
    • This is possibly an after-effect of the Forsaken Shores Alliance using the magic totem onboard their ship, the Shroudbreaker.
  • If players venture too far into The Devil's Shroud without their ship sinking then they will automatically be teleported to a new one.
  • Fully restoring the Shroudbreaker is the only way to get to Tribute Peak safely.
