Al-Fidur is the Northernmost of the great cities and the one that is the least visited by people from the other cities. Al-Fidur is built in a fertile region that is located close to the only natural forest in the land.

Al-Fidur is known as a city of sailors. The supply of wood from the forest has enabled them to build and operate small triremes. They operate the coastal trade route. The people of Al-Fidur are very superstitious and many of the sailors will rather sleep on their boats than in the other coastal cities.

They are also skilled craftsmen with wood. They are also renowned archers.
