Fort Gardus

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Fort Gardus is a military city found in the Jade Kingdom of Verdia in the Everspring Swathe of Ghyran. [1a]


Age of Sigmar

What was once a minor keep built on the borders between Sigmar's Empire and the daemon haunted Scabrous Sprawl, has since grown to become an imposing military city and bastion sitting at the centre of a vast network of fortresses and watchtowers, including the series of watchtowers known as the Emerald Line.[2a][3a]


Fort Gardus is located to the north of the Free City of Hammerhal Ghyra, the distance between them taking several days of marching to cover. The mighty bastion sits on the border between the areas claimed by Sigmar's empire and the Scabrous Sprawl to the north.[1a][2a]


Fort Gardus relies on shipments of wheat, barley, and oats from small agricultural settlements. One such settlement was Vinetown, before it was destroyed by Tzaangors. It also provides needed supplies to the other fortresses and watchtowers of the Emerald Line.[3a]


Fort Gardus is a heavily militarized city serving as one of the main lines of defense between Hammerhal and the dangers of the Realm of Ghyran. It acts as the nerve centre of the Emerald Line, a network of fortresses and watchtowers extending from Hammerhal Ghyra to the borders of the Scabrous Sprawl to the north and the Nevergreen Mountains to the west. Freeguild regiments and companies serve as the garrison and expeditionary forces of the city.[2a][3a]
