Seabreeze Brink stretches from bay to Atlantic Coast. Most of the land is relatively low in elevation and pockmarked with glacial effects. The occasional erratic stone can be seen even in central Ethereal Eclipse, far from the raised beaches of the Shattered Coast. There are numerous rivers, kettle lakes, and other small bodies of water; streams and creeks snake through thick inland forest before reaching the rocky, jagged shoreline.
Much of the coast here is particularly cool and wet; as the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bay of Fundy, the area is subjected to some of the harsher tides and weather the cold waters can muster. Fog covers the coastline frequently, snaking far inland to serenely cling to the drier inland wilderness. Evidence of humanity remains in scarce traces, for most of it was scattered during the cataclysmic events in the Spring of 2016.
- Climate: The central parts of Nova Scotia are the most moderate -- the surrounding bay and ocean do much to mitigate the harshness of Canadian weather. The summers are especially warm and beautiful, and the central regions have been spared winter's sharp bite in previous seasons.
- Geography: Seabreeze Brink is a dramatic region of 'Souls -- the Trenches consist of proud drumlins, glacially raised hills; whereas the inland Ethereal Eclipse consists of the Kejimikujik. The Annapolis Valley, lowlands to the north, sits between two low ridges at the heart of Nova Scotia.
- Demographics: The Kejimikujik, a national park, dominates the region, spanning Ethereal Eclipse and Serena Reserve. The Atlantic Coast was heavily populated, Halifax's residents spilling out and into the countryside. Overgrowth Sunrise, part of the lush Annapolis Valley, was also dominated by two human villages.
- Prey: Abundant, despite heavy canine predation. The inland forests are well-populated by prey of varying size and shape.
- Fauna: A vast number of rodent and small mammal species are found here; Southern Flying Squirrels are found in the Serena Reserve territory. Eastern Red Bats and Silver-Haired Bats commonly roost in forests. While reintroduced Elk are the dominant species throughought the inland forests, Whitetail and Moose are also commonly sighted. Golden eagles roost in the summer. Elk are the dominant species, though they do not frequent the coasts. Peregrine Falcon and the Osprey as well as various species of cranes, plovers, and sandpipers are among the shorebirds found in this region. Horses can be found on Cheval Island and, rarely, along the mainland coast close to the island.
- Flora: Tamaracks and Black Ash trees are found over the inland forests, as they prefer a damp environment. Atlantic White Cypress and Silver Maple trees are also found in this area. Invasive English Oak dominates parts of the Ethereal Eclipse territory. Bog laurel and American Cranberry can be found along streams and beside lakes. Labrador Tea is found abundantly in this area. The Northern Bayberry finds even the rocky and unforgiving soil of the coast suitable; Sweetfern and invasive Fennel prefer inland forest. Eastern Hemlock, Black Spruce, White Pine, and American Elm are the dominant tree species.
