Gilgan is a major city of the Aurian Empire known for its Golden-lighted mines. Its building are almost all made of baked clay brick or stone. Though it is the centre for gold production on the continent its people are not generally affluent. It has a large slave workforce as well as a paid Aurian one.
There is a small select area of Gilgan called the Cash Quarter in which only the priviledged mine owners and those of their class may have their estates. It is rarely troubled as those who run the mines and profitable trading market of Gilgan line well the pockets of the Black Protectoran which keeps them highly protected and in some cases above them law.
