Core Sea

The Core Sea was once the western, deeper side of the Nermais Sea. When the water levels dropped in the Onyx Enmity War (915 - 920), the area came to be called the Core Sea.

From the northeast, the Core Sea is fed by Ice Cap's melting glaciers. These streams converge forming the Tulerran River which flows into the Core Sea near the Pelwir Islands. From the south, three rivers empty into the Core Sea, the Alarthand, the Famirótan and the Elatir. In other directions, the Core Sea drains east into the Eämbavië delta where starts the Avalninâth river, and north where starts the Eldorien river.

Many pirates hide among the sea's southern fjords, islands and river deltas. The largest concentration of these lawless groups are home to the Pelwir Islands.

In the Third Epoch, the sea was contested by the Khazarkar Empire and the Orchish Empire. The latter built their settlements, fortresses and other holdings on the southwest coasts of the sea, while the Khazarkar Empire took command of the southeast centered on the port city Aphalê north to the river city of Sakarumân.

Another coastal empire of the area is the Kingdom of Ithengee. An elven nation with roots back to the High Wood Country, they control the northwestern coasts centered on Séregon.
