The northern sea is cold and harsh; its dark waters offer no welcome to a weary traveler.
Storms tend to be more frequent on these waters than they do on their southern counterparts, and sailors have recounted strange tellings of their journey - the sea has been said to spring leaks, as if somebody pulled free a great drain at its basin. The great god W'alkri has also been said to reside within these waters, and is known to blanket the sky with fire upon angering. Even still, life thrives within the ocean. Too cold for many of the larger beasts that lurk beneath southern waters, smaller dangers, such as teethed fish and great sharks still populate this colder area. The only path frequented by merchants on this stretch of water is a beeline from the docks of Haven to the island of Aries.
