The Battle of Shipworm Shoal was one of the last major sea battles of the war between the Empire of Charis and the forces loyal to the Church of God Awaiting.

It took place in Shipworm Shoal in the Year of God 898, and saw a Charisian victory thanks to ther overwhelming power of its ironclads. The Royal Dohlaran Navy's Western Squadron simply ceased to exist after the battle, as not a single ship heavier than a twenty-gun brig managed to escape. (AST)
