General Description

Gandara, the Moon Fortress is a city in Kourna, with well-guarded gates. Enemies of Varesh Ossa have no chance of breaking in, though there have been attacks from the sea and infiltrations that have gotten through its defensive barriers. The explorable area is on the shores north of the city, at the mouth of the river Elon, mostly in the river's delta and the shallow waters between islands. The city itself is situated on the largest island, giving it a distinctive crescent shape. Locations of note include docks on the west point and in the south, and the Plaza of the Five Gods, a large square in the eastern part of the city. There is a prison on another island, to the east.
