The Great Sea
The Great Sea is by far the most massive body of water in Madisya, the Great Sea represents over nine-tenths all lake, sea, river, or underground water in the lands. It is home to a majority of Madisya’s trade, and also supplies a steady source of other means of income (such as fishing, or dye from sea creatures) to the coastal cities and kingdoms. The water is salty, and thus not suitable for drinking. While strong tides, vicious storms, and high reefs are known to trouble travelers, generally it is a safe means of passage.
A number of islands can be found in the Great Sea of varying sizes. Due in part to the low population of Madisya as a whole, and various geographical features such as currents and reefs, they remain largely unexplored and in most instances entirely uncivilized by the mainlands.
