Kilgarde lies close to Jetsam and is ruled by Baron Marten Kilgarde. It is the second largest human city to Purg, and is a powerful force on the Eastern frontier. Due to its closeness to the Eastern Satrap, many Dust Traders come into Kilgarde, and there are peoples of all realms to be found here. There is a large military presence in the city, and they are regularly used in skirmishes between the Satrap and roaming monsters in the area. While there is no outright war between the Broken Kingdom and Eastern Satrap, there is an uneasy distrust between the two, and the Baron’s forces are well aware that an invasion could come at any moment.
For most looking to enter the Eastern Satrap, they go to Kilgarde to find safe passage, and many caravans and mercenaries can be hired here to protect travellers along the way. Exotic creatures such as the Crodlu are often traded and bred here, and overall the city has a multi-nation culture to it. Fashion and architecture is influenced as much by the Godking Balishar as it is the Broken Barons.
