The Inner Sea
The Inner Sea is one of the most heavily traveled and populated bodies of water in Golarion. Formed when the Starstone fell to earth, reshaping the face of the planet, the Inner Sea rests between Avistan and Garund. The sea is isolated from the Arcadian Ocean by a narrow straight under the Arch of Aroden which is currently under Chelaxian control, but trade in and out of the region is very strong and mostly free. The primary settlement within the sea itself is Absalom on the Isle of Kortos at the eastern end of the sea.
