From PathfinderWiki

Geography

The Ivory Sea connects to the Embaral Ocean in the south and the Shining Sea in the west.[1] The sea borders the northwest of the continent of Tian Xia, stretching blow the feet of the northern Wall of Heaven Mountains, up to the southern shores of the Crown of the World.[2] During much of the year, the Ivory Sea is covered by the Tashen Yakuta ice shelf.[3]

The Moraghiin River flows into the Ivory Sea.[4]

Ecology

The Ivory Sea is vitally important to the Erutaki of Yumyzyl, who have inhabited its coast since time out of mind and hunt its waters for meat, blubber, and ivory. The sea is home to abundant sea life, including seals, walruses, and numerous species of whales, including the narwhal and beluga, also known as the "ivory whale" for its gleaming white skin. In the winter, sea mammals are often find themselves trapped under the ice and are forced to find small holes in the ice in which to breathe, making them easy prey for Erutaki hunters.[2][1][5]

Various monsters also inhabit the Ivory Sea, among them grindylows, devilfish[6], iku-tursos[7], and siyokoys.[8]
