The Wild Coast refers to a large coastal stretch of land on the western shore of Woolly Bay.
Little more than a collection of five major city-states for most of its history, the Wild Coast has long held a reputation for being untamed. Prior to the Greyhawk Wars, each city-state controlled its own affairs. However, things changed once Turrosh Mak gained control of the Pomarj. In 584 CY, Mak's forces marched north, taking the towns of Elredd, Badwall, and Fax, thus conquering the entire southern Wild Coast. The remaining towns of Safeton and Narwell escaped destruction only by swearing fealty to Greyhawk, resulting in the northern Wild Coast being absorbed into the Free City's domain.
In Dragon Magazine #90, two fiefdoms mentioned nowhere else are referred to in an article called "Playing the Political Game." These are the domain of Luxor and, sandwiched between Luxor and the Suss Forest, the smaller domain of Karmagia.
Due to the independent nature of the Wild Coast, no one standard has been adopted as representative of the entire region. However, the various city-states have traditionally carried their own devices:
- Elredd: Lozengy or and vert
- Fax: Argent, three lozenges gules
- Narwell: Barry of eight, azure and argent
- Safeton: Vair, a canton paly of six sable and or
