"Excepting some aid we received from a private citizen of Miletos during the Ofuchi incident, nothing good has come out of Miletos in all of recorded history. Effluvium from the northern portions of the continent affect global fish stocks, and it's a popular hiding place for the braver sort of pirate. Almost by definition, anything coming out of Miletos is by nature criminal."
Miletos was a continent in the Second Age. It was home to Raistlin II who lived in his tower which was surrounded by a magical forest, and Arawn Losstarot. The earth was cursed there, too, due to the taint from Yggdrasil which affected areas surrounding Mardük's Prison. The continent was mostly barren, so a common saying was that nothing good ever came from Miletos.
