    This world closely orbits the small red dwarf Kepler-438 so closely that it is tidally locked, meaning that one pole faces the sun while the other is forever locked in darkness. The sun facing side of the planet is habitable while the unreachable dark side is completely covered in ice. The strong tides keep the ocean forever bulged out at the poles, but again only the sun-facing ocean is accessible, the far ocean is forever trapped under miles of ice.

    A fun polar projection map for BERT. Supports water starts for the two water-preferring sponsors.
