The Tragedy of Tirath
A large fresh water inland sea, the Sangen sea is not only inportant for trade and commerce, but also for travel. It’s size combined with its centrality to the Arstean continent means it is more often than not faster to go across than around. It is connected to the Alrynn ocean by the Sandimar Canal. The sea is not subject to nearly as bad of storms of the outer oceans, but in the fall there are several weeks in which it is almost impassable especially on the western side. Being as far seperated from the outer oceans as it is, and given it’s fresh water composition it hosts very different species than the oceans. Fishing villages and cities ring the coast, but every now and then a fisherman comes in with something quite inexplicable. This has lead to rumors of sea monsters, undersea cities and other fantastical yarns.
