Myr Thalal

The Myr Thalal; commonly known as the "Cold Sea," is an arctic ocean located off northwest Corwyn.

Long ago, the Elder-Elves named this cold and harsh body of water for the Thaldain people.

In summer months, many ships venture across it to reach the seaports on the northern coast of Orrek, in search of rich dwarvish crafts to sell to the human civilizations of Corwyn.

But in the winter, the ocean freezes completely and is impassable by ship. Even in the spring and autumn months, the waters are plagued by many dangerous icebergs.

However, in the winter months, intrepid merchants annually hire dozens of sled caravans to cross the ice and carry their goods between the scattered dwarvish and human coastal settlements.

It is also only in the deepest of winter that the frozen water prevents raids by Variags of the Thalar Islands; much to the relief of coastal peoples of Ammarind, Derianor, Iskandar, Marundi, Orrek, and the Barrens.
