The Hespereth Strait (also known as the Straits of Aroden) is a narrow channel of water approximately 15 miles in width which connects the Arcadian Ocean with the Inner Sea. It was formerly bridged by the Arch of Aroden, and is the closest the continents of Avistan and Garund come to meet. Both sides of the strait are currently controlled by the country of Cheliax.
The Hespereth Strait, along with the rest of the Inner Sea, was created by the impact of the Starstone in -5293 AR. Before that catastrophe, a landbridge connected the continents of Avistan and Garund where the strait is low located.
