Sea of Orel

The Sea of Orel is the most heavily traveled, and heavily contested body of water on Corwyn.

Long ago, this ocean was called "the South Sea." Today, The Sea of Orel is bordered by the Eldaran Isthmus to the west and the Kratheri Peninsula to the east, and within its horseshoe coast are many great cities and thousands of villages and hamlets; all of which use the sea for trade.

Presently, the kingdom of Orel controls much of the sea trade here, followed closely by the realm of Thûle. There are few small islands located on the sea, which are almost entirely fortified strongholds to support the navies and merchant fleets of the competing nations.

The waters are warm and calm most of the year. It is not unusual to see literally hundreds of ships pass certain lookout points in a single day on their journeys to and from the ports scattered along the shores.

The Sea of Orel is the busiest waterway on the world of Oris; its busiest and most well-known seaports are: Durendar, Elsidar, Morathad, Olthad, Ordana, Renford, Seaforth, Varistan, and Westfall.
