1.  Description

Enduring constant abuse from marine waves, the shoreline along the Gulf of St. Lawrence has eroded into a series of jagged cliffs jutting steeply out of the sea. Across from the mainland are a series of small, nondescript rock islands which provide a safe haven for migrating seabirds, such as Northern gannets, kittiwakes, black cormorants, silvery gulls, and puffins. Though vegetation is sparse and there is little prey to be found here, The Bluffs provide a view of the ocean that is second to none.

2.  Waterways

2.1  Gulf of Saint Lawrence

The Gulf of Saint Lawrence is a massive gulf to the north, outlet to the Great Lakes to the far south. The gulf borders Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick areas such as Isthmus of Chignecto, and the Cape Breton Peninsula. Only a small part of the Gulf occurs within the playable game areas. Frozen water and ice floes are common in winter; cold water in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence helps to make the temperature of mainland Canada territories and Prince Edward Island consistently colder than much of southern Nova Scotia.
