The City of Ruan
The City of Ruan is the main settlement of the province of Ruan in “Trails in the Sky” and is the central hub for chapter 2 in the game.
Located in the western area of Liberl, Ruan sits upon the mouth of the Roubine River at Azelia Bay. Before the era of orbal-powered airships, this harbour city used to be the hub of trade and transportation as Liberl's major seaport but is now nothing more than a tourist trap. Even the famous Langland Bridge which spans across the River rarely operates to allow large ships to pass, and instead opens on a schedule to please the sightseers.
The city's mayor is currently Mayor Dalmore who resides in the city's south-east area. The northern exit leads to the Gull Seaside Way, and the southern path via the Aurian Causeway.
