Purpose: This article exists for the sole purpose of noting geographical taxonomy that differs in Ill Bethisad. Minor differences in spelling or language can be noted here as well as major differences where the name is utterly different *there* than it is *here*. Categories are left broad and may be altered as is seen fit.

Style: Please try to follow a simple and succinct style when noting any differences. This article isn't about geographical features per se. For preference, note the name of the place in its local context and what it's common name is in the primary world; note who in IB uses the name and any links that may be appropriate.

Oceans and Seas
