The port city of Egede (pronounced eh-GEHD-eh) is located on the Lake of Mists and Veils. It is the second-largest city in the Theocracy of Mendev, and as the end of the River Road, is the first Mendevian city that most crusaders enter.
From Egede, trade from neighbouring nations (in particular Brevoy since the recent fall of House Rogarvia) usually flows into Mendev, in addition to crusaders traveling from the south through the River Kingdoms and Numeria. Exhausted soldiers are often sent to Egede for much needed rest and relaxation, whether that may be prayer at the temples or a trip to the covert brothels and bawdy houses that have begun to thrive there. A great deal of work is also done here in support of the war effort, often by travelers thoroughly bankrupted by unscrupulous merchants on their way to the crusades.
The growth of industry, trade and business has proven helpful to the crusaders cause, but some have begun to worry that the city is becoming a den of sin and debauchery.
