A major port city in the south of Qùgedòlia.


The port is protected by a tall stone wall and overseen by half a dozen gun towers. Additionally, a squadron of Pereqaian navy ships patrols the surrounding waters.   On land the city is surrounded by a wide moat and palisades of wood and metal.

Industry & Trade

Qùfènicvè is Lemoros' central hub for sea trade with other nations. The most important goods for export are various spices and tamed animals from the eastern jungle lands.


Early History

Qùfènicvè began as a small fisher village, but quickly grew into an important supply point for passing trader ships. This development picked up speed when trade relations with the jungle lands were established. By the year 200 FGZ, the settlement was known as a thriving trade hub bustling with travellers from far-away places, filled with exotic wares and offering countless opportunities for making a fortune.  

The Incident of 135

With its strategic location at near the southern tip of Qùgedòlia, the port city became a major asset for the Pereqaian navy after the war with the Nimýric Empire broke out. This, unfortunately, caught the attention of the enemy, leading to the Incident of 135.   During the insidious attack, half of the city went down in flames and about a third of its population was killed. Many of those who survived the inferno ended up falling into poverty and losing their homes. Additionally, various illnesses began to ravage the city due to the loss of vital infrastructure and less-than-sanitary conditions in the aftermath.  


Fortunately, the Pereqaian Alliance would not leave them alone in their hour of need. Within two weeks of the disaster, numerous supply ships arrived to provide food, clothes and medicine to the population. From the inner lands, neighboring settlements sent construction workers and materials to rebuild the destroyed parts of the city, better and stronger than before. Furthermore, a special contract was negotiated with the neighboring country of Sudhegaros. They agreed to provide large amounts of stone for the new fortifications in exchange for generous discounts when buying wares from Lemoros.   With such strong support the city could soon return to its normal life. Trade began again, businesses were started anew and the living conditions of the inhabitants steadily improved. Within a decade, Qùfènicvè had risen to its old glory and beyond, wearing its scars with pride.


The entire city is built on stilts to stand above the flooded ground when the tide rises. Buildings are mostly made of wood, protected against rotting and molding by infusing them with the sap of the òduxu tree. Following the Incident of 135, the port's fortifications were rebuilt with stone from Sudhegaros.
