Rangers of the North
Since the destruction of Lond Daer, this port on the northern bank of the mouth of the Gwathló was been the second city of Cardolan, and indeed is the only town of note in Cardolan after the Fall of Tharbad. It was the capital of the petty kingdom Saralainn, mainly because the King’s most reliable revenues come from the tolls on the ships and barges that called here. Although mainly abandoned, the town has retained much of its old, unsavory character.
1) The Gwathló Road, which roughly follows the path of the river down from Talsír and Tharbad.
2) The Toll House, a squat granite fort.
3) The wooden bridge into Sudúri.
4) The Dunnish Town,a large collection of the squalid huts of the native tribesmen.
5)The twin eastern gates of Sudúri, each defended by two barbicans.
6) City Wall, three thin stories of native granite.Never terribly strong, the walls of Sudúri have not been properly maintained since the days of Arnor,and they are now crumbling in many spots.
7) The Northwestern Gate. In the old days it was defended by two towers and a proper gatehouse.
8) Market squares. Sudúri is noted for its bargains, and its smugglers.
9) Dock district. This rundown section of the city is traditionally comprised of Southerners.
10) The Docks.
11) Business and commercial district.
12) Warehouse district.
13) Residential district.
14) Two towers. These protected the causeway leading to Tol Hir (S.“Lord Island”). The causeway was burnt during the revolt.
15) Tol Hir.
16) Citadel. The walls have seen much more attention than the city walls. The defensive value of the citadel has been compromised by its lack of a bailey.
17) Dúnadan Town. Traditionally the home of clansmen who tolerated living in the city.
18) The Little Lighthouse. The neutral Bargemen hold this minor fort.
19) The Bargemen Fort. The Bargemen have been happy to keep a separate residence near Sudúri. They have protected their homes with aearth rampart topped by a sturdy wooden wall.
20) The Great Lighthouse.
