(population: 58,000) Durendar is the capitol city of the kingdom of Thûle.

The city is quite large and a veritable fortress. It was once the finest eastern city of the kingdom of East Eldara, before the terrible civil war that destroyed the unity of that ancient kingdom. Durendar is now a dark place of fear and suspicion. The city is located on the Kratheri Peninsula, along the western shore of the Sea of Orel. The city is accessible via the Durendar Road, which connects it to the city of Jharë to the north and the fortress of Avek Nahr to the south. Within the city of Durendar is Castle Terathar.


The present-day city of Durendar was originally founded by Prince Daghon, who; after crossing the South Sea, chose a secluded inlet as a landing site for his fleet, Daghon named the inlet "Durendar," and it was the first Thannish settlement on the Kratheri Peninsula, and the starting point of the infamous "Glorious Conquest."
