To look at the ocean is to wonder- "What is out there?" "Are there other lands?" "What treasures could I find?". I advise you against pursuing these lines of thought. The ocean is a place of death. Yes, it teems with life, but in the depths are creatures more terrible and vast than any inland. Most only swim, but some are more than capable of flight. We should be grateful every day that they do not make the effort to come ashore. All expeditions past the edges of the Continent are gone, forever. Please, let us stop wasting resources and instead focus on reclaiming what is right under our feet.
