Valgard is the capital city of Gardneria.
Valgard is a bustling port city. It's located in a sloping valley. It rings the Malthorin Bay and its docks resemble the curved half of a long fishbone.
The buildings are made of Ironwood. Their progressively wider upper stories are supported by richly carved ebony columns, and curling emerald trellises thick with lush, flowering vines flow out over the rooftops and down the buildings' sides. There is an endless variety of shops, cafes, and markets. There is also the Valgard Symphony. The main church is the Grand Cathedral where Marcus Vogel is the priest.
