Natural Distasters in Strait of Lyc?

Posted by Icefur2 on 6 September 2021 in English (English).

Hi, i’m working on the history of some of the cities in my country Pactone, and I’m wondering, are there any tropical cyclones or other natural distaters that commonly happen in the Strait of Lyc, especially in the western half? I want to incorporate some into my country’s history. Thanks, Icefur2

hmm, I’m not sure about that, although not canon, many countries in the strait of Lyc may not receive as many natural disasters due to discussions based on ocean currents and tectonics on the old wiki.

It would be more likely for tropical storms to curve around the western side of Antarephia alongside any tectonic plate boundaries.

Hope this helps, sincerely, Intergan

Yeah, I’m not an expert but I believe cyclones and the like would typically form on open seas in the real world, and the Straight of Lyc is kind of nicely shielding from that, at least the part where Pactone (and my own territory, Aerágny) is. Obviously that doesn’t mean some heavy storms can’t have occurred in history, there’s always an anomaly to say the least. In fact, Airannian history as I currently have it pencilled down would involve a powerful tropical storm striking the eastern coast at some point in the past.
