Sea of Orel

This is the most heavily traveled, heavily contested, and frequently warred over body of water on Corwyn. The Sea of Orel is surrounded by the Eldaran Isthmus to the west and the Kratheri Peninsula to the east, and within this horseshoe coast are literally thousand of villages, hamlets and even great cities that ply their wares across the sea and trade for goods inland. The Sea of Orel was known in ancient times as the 'Sea of Eldara,' when it was entirely controlled by the kingdom of Eldara.

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, temperate and calm most of the year, and are heavily trafficked. 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 along the coasts.

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.
