Aruldusk, a small city near the western shore of Lake Arul, was largely spared the horrors of the Last War that ravaged nearby cities like Shadukar. The Lightning Rail passes through the town, heading to Sigilstar on the Thrane River to the west and Vathirond, Breland to the south. The city is a rather quaint tourist town whose inhabitants are mostly simple merchants or farmers. Though there is a sizeable tribe of shifter gypsies which inhabit a tent city on the outskirts of the city. The majority of the population worship the Silver Flame, though there are Sovereign Host devotees in the city as well, many of whom are Throneholders.

The cathedral, and the city are governed by Bishop Maellas, an Aereni convert from the Undying Court.
