Aoutji Bay

People travel and hunt on the sea ice; they hunt in skin boats for whales, they hunt with dogsleds for cervidae. The ice is their highway. The ice is their lifeblood.

— Gretel Ehrlich, Late Matron of Aoutji


Aoutji Bay is a small inlet of water from the greater Baltian Sea, northeast of the Atlasovan Pass. It is fully covered in a thick layer of ice most of the year; the thick layers of permafrost have been growing yearly for millennia.

The small village of Aoutji, for which the bay is named, is a relatively new establishment, formed by displaced refugees of the Unification Wars raging to the south.
