Glidden is a central hub in Istria, notable as a gathering point of different races ready to undergo the Great Migration. Due to this important role, Glidden is home to many races which would normally not cohabit so close together willingly. Racial tensions are kept in check due to the Gliddian spirit of cooperation. This spirit allows adventurers to often find themselves going on quests with a motley crew of companions. It has a local pub and inn, as well as a Mages' Guild, which acts as a repository for thousands of magical artifacts.
