The Aryth Ocean is the large ocean separating the main continent from the Seanchan lands in the East and is around 10000 miles across (Map, TwoRJTWoT, Ch. 15). In the main continent, Arad Doman and Tarabon are on the ocean, and the towns of Bandar Eban, Falme and Tanchico all are ports there. In Seanchan, Rampre and Shon Kifar both lay on the Aryth Ocean. The Sea folk have always refused to cross the Ocean, claiming that the Islands of the Dead lay on the other side (TGH, Ch. 9). Most people did not believe it possible that the Seanchan could come from the other side of the Aryth Ocean (TGH, Ch. 9; TDR, Prologue; ACoS, Ch. 7).
Lands under the Shadow, beyond the setting sun, beyond the Aryth Ocean, where the Armies of Night reign (The Great Hunt, Chapter 9).
