Archlond Sea

The Archlond Sea is the only known sea in Archlond; it is most properly classified as an elevated inland freshwater sea, and serves as more than enough of a moat for Aschalon, the Great Capital City of Archlond. The sea has few tributaries, however it empties through only two rivers. At one time it was one of the largest bodies of water besides the great oceans, and its ancient basin still ranks among the greatest in all of Erdon.

Despite the name, there is actually some significant debate about whether the Archlond Sea is actually a true sea, or just the largest great lake in the multiverse. Unlike most inland seas, it doesn’t ever draw seawater in from the oceans; indeed it is strictly fed by running fresh-water sources. However, the corpus is so large that its hydrology is affected more by internal currents and weather patterns than the inflow and outflow of the rivers.
