Honestly, I don't have a lot of my old notes about Anakh's world, but it's quite possible that there is no water native to it.  However, then we get into issues with there being no clouds with no hydrologic cycle to produce them, and the extremes in max/min temperature that causes - not to mention no water means no water vapor, meaning it's painful to breathe or even /exist/ for long periods of time...

... so, er, it's quite possible that Anakh simply landed in the middle of a very, very large desert, and that's where Dur Lachesis is/will be/was/wioll haven be.

I can't remember what possessed me to write it just like that; I think perhaps it had to do with some Anansi or Coyote tales.
