Lynnea is filled to the brim with water. The vast oceans cover miles of the known world and has even led people to believe that there is plenty uncharted lands to be discovered. The waters of Lynnea could be considered a realm entirely of its own. Filled with various types of Merfolk, creatures, animals and monsters, it teems with life and societies. Presently there are four major bodies of water recognized by the world’s denizens and plenty of harbors, bays, rivers and other smaller collections of seas.
The Great Sea is the space between Aurelia and Idaer that meets the Frigid Ocean. A bitterly salty and cold body of water, it is assumed to be the deepest sea of the world and makes up the home of a unique type of Merfolk. Lumine Mer or Luminetians, are merrow adorning adaptations to life in dark, otherworldly, climates of deep seas and are apex predators thought to be the descendants of shoal exiles and outcasts. Luminetians can be distinguished by their sensitivity to light and their foreign, almost alien like behaviors, as well as interesting body enhancements such as bioluminescence. These Mer are considered rare, and only a few have been seen by the more populous races. Some assume a lot perish during battles with aquatic monsters of the Great Sea, such as Krakens and Sea dragons, but it may just be that most Lumine Mer forget the surface exists.
A place that only a few have dared entered and ever returned. The Maelstrom Expanse is nothing but open waters filled with giant underwater creatures, whirlpools and the unknown. It is said to be the most lethal and savage area in the known world but the denizens of Lynnea swear of paradise in distant lands across it. Many stories, fables, and myths have stemmed from this vast ocean, and occasionally, never before seen items wash up on shores across Lynnea. No one alive knows the truth, but… it's bound to be reached eventually.
The Violetold is a warm ocean that surrounds the world’s equator. It is the body of water that lays around the shores of the Nokko Ina islands and is the primary home of the Corelan Merfolk. These waters wash close to the southern Aurelian shores and meet with the Great Sea. It also touches the south and southeastern areas of Sars’Kri, Idaer, and Giichi. Many coral reefs reside in the shallows of the Violetold and make up great ecosystems for various saltwater creatures. Tropical fish, types of shark, whales and dolphins are a sight to see below the crystal blue waters. This paradise isn’t without its dangers. Under the surface holds potentially poisonousness wildlife and vicious aquatic monsters such as adolescent Dragon Turtles.
The Frigid Ocean is the cruel waters that entrap The Dread Isles and taunt the northeastern coast of Aurelia. It is one of the more violent of the waters closer to Aurelia but the further towards Hokoth you sail, it becomes eerily quiet, calm and can lull the inexperienced sailor into a false sense of security. Before long the ocean’s surface becomes caked with ice and below a ship’s hull is deadly outcroppings and jagged rocks. It is a place known to take many lives, if not by sinking ship then hypothermia or the Verl Sirens. This area is ruled by Verlians; Artic Merfolk, who are described as the most nefarious and deceiving of their kind.
