Perdan is the largest city of the continent, often referred to as the City of Lions. Famed for its splendour and riches, it is both the cradle and pinnacle of Perdanese culture. Located on the southern bank of the river Bescanon about twenty miles south from its mouth on the Kalmar Bay, the city is replete with beautiful and ingeniously designed buildings, many of which are famous in their own right, such as the city's lighthouse known as Vermillion Light, and decrepit but imposing ruins of Perdan's tall and many-windowed temple of Triumvirate. In addition, the reputations of such unique taverns as the Lion's Den and the Maimed Seagull reach far beyond the Perdan's walls and further add to the city's distinction.
The City of Perdan is the founding region of The Kingdom Of Perdan and is the richest and the second largest city on the East Continent. It is located on the southern coast of Kalmar Bay. Throughout the years, the realm has mostly been Perdanese, though for some time in 1014 was in Eponlli hands. Since being retaken by Perdanese forces, it has remained a bastion of Perdanese strength and stability. Once reclaimed, it has never had its walls breached by enemy forces.
Law and Order
Trade and Commerce
Perdan thrives on trade in wheat and silver from the surrounding regions. Its merchant ward is stretched along the waterfront and is ripe with vendor stalls selling all manner of goods. In the harbour cogs and galleys are being loaded with sacks of wheat flour, barrels of ale and silverware and being unloaded with anything else one can imagine.
Most of the city's economy is based around trade and manufacturing, producing goods for the rural regions of the country.
Exports: Manufactured Goods, Weapons, Armor

City Gates - The city has five gates, each giving entrance to the city from a different direction and leading to broad, straight, and well-maintained caravan routes. The gates are, in clockwise order from the north, the Longbridge Gate, the Green Gate, the Lions' Gate, the King's Gate, and the Iron Gate. Each gate is historically overseen by a loyal knight in city governor's service, a scion of old and reputable house. Although today Gate Warden is more of an honorary position for the city's most prominent knights.
Ducal Palace - The Ducal Palace is located on a craggy hill overlooking the harbour. The castle itself is a vast and opulent building, resembling an oversized palace rather than a stronghold. The massive gate with a draw bridge is at all times guarded by the Lion Guard, elite warriors clad in intricately engraved breastplates and elaborate helmets decorated with long black and yellow plumes.
