The port city of Egede (pronounced eh-GEHD-eh)[1] is located on the Lake of Mists and Veils. It is the second-largest city in the Mendev, and as the end of the River Road, is the first Mendevian city that most crusaders entered during the period of the Mendevian Crusades.[2]

From Egede, trade from neighbouring nations (in particular Brevoy, since the recent fall of House Rogarvia) usually flows into Mendev, as did crusaders traveling from the south through the River Kingdoms and Numeria. During the Mendevian Crusades, exhausted soldiers were often sent to Egede for much needed rest and relaxation, whether that was for prayer at the temples or a trip to the covert brothels and bawdy houses that thrived there. A great deal of work was also done here in support of the war effort, often by travelers thoroughly bankrupted by unscrupulous merchants on their way to the crusades.[3]

The growth of industry, trade, and business proved helpful to the crusaders' cause, but some have begun to worry that the city is becoming a den of sin and debauchery.[citation needed]
