Grey Ocean – Local
The shallowest and the smallest ocean undergoing cyclical transformations.
Low evaporation, large freshwater inflow with a limited connection to the other oceans.
Coastal villages are a lower form of port cities enabling the minimum of trading and also rest during changing conditions.
Affected by environmental changes, players often trade during the appropriate season (defrosting to reach new islands or freezing to stay in temporary trade zones)
Ships can get trapped or crushed by ice due to icebergs formation.
It does not favour transit or trade but opens local potential
It's easy to start in the grey ocean as a company, but it's extremely difficult to acclimatize to an entry to the other oceans.
Self-sufficient players also do best here especially when they understand their customers' needs and preferences.
