To the West, there’s a big ocean, mostly semi-civilized, but with a tiny little civilized Region inside it – perhaps some sort of island or aquatic realm.  Interesting.  There are also three towns  scattered across that ocean- are they on little islands?  Or full-on fantasy underwater settlements?  We’ll see!
