Lugard is the capital city of Murandy and is located in the heart of the nation on the banks of the River Storn (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30).

It is the trade center for Murandy as well and Lugard has a well-earned commercial reputation (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30).

Lugard also has a reputation for thievery and licentiousness. Residents consider any outsider to be a fair mark for theft or con (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30).

Lugard makes and exports lace (TDR, Ch. 18). Trade is what keeps Lugard alive; goods from Illian, Ebou Dar, Andor and Ghealdan all come through Lugard (TFoH, Ch. 11).

Lugard is the seat of King Roedran of Murandy (TFoH, Ch. 11).

City Layout and Buildings

Within the city, large patches of bare ground are set aside for freight wagons of every shape and size (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30).

The tall gray perimeter walls are down in most places to no more than a low wall or a pile of rubble (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30). One of the gates is called the Shilene Gate (TFoH, Ch. 11).

Most of the broad streets are unpaved and dusty (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30).

The gray stone buildings have bright-colored tile roofs and are always covered with a film of dirt (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30).

Jagged, unkept stone walls crisscross the city’s haphazard layout, marking divisions claimed by feuding nobles over the years (TWoRJTWoT, Ch. 30).
