The Urkhan Sea was an underground sea that was located inside the dwarven nation of Thorbardin and was under the Cloudseeker Mountain. It was created from water running down a giant stalactite (Hybardin) from an aboveground frozen lake. The sea was 7 miles across from north to south, 5 miles in width, and was surrounded by dozens of square miles of open caverns. The sea would eventually connect six dwarven cities via a chain ferry. Many animal life can be found in this huge body of water, including Urkhan Eel.
Some histories state that dwarves created this sea, but this is a naturally made body of water.
