This body of water is almost landlocked, with access to the Brither Sea
to the west through a relatively narrow straight to the southeast of Alkrak
. The Armen Sea
also empties into the Mare Inibris in the northeast through the Imperial Straits
. During the height of the Urbiot Empire
, a common name for the sea was "Lake Urbia". This sea is noted for being relatively calm and having mostly clear water (in some areas sailors are able to see several fathoms to the bottom).
