The North Sea is often a source of storms, leading to the people of the NorthSea Arling's coastal towns and city to carry names along the lines of storm-themes for their occupation, such as Arle Stormwatch carrying a name of someone who watches the weather.
Fauna & Flora
"You hear about Croat?"The merfolk live deeper in the waters and while a number hunt large fish and sea mammals, many farm deep sea plants, such as types of kelp, during the warmer parts of the year.
"That Goltherine fellow?"
"You nitwit! He's a Thydian born and true; but that's not what I meant. You hear about his last whaling?"
"Who're you two talking about?"
"Captain Salim? What about his last whaling?"
"Oh right, you broke your leg on the trip before. Anyway, Croat swears he saw the spikiest whale."
Whale types include Narwhals, SpermWhales, Blue Whales, and a rumored whale "with spikes on the spikes."
