Map Seven Cities detail

Seven Cities Subcontinent

Rutu Jelba was a port city in northern Otataral Island[1] on the Seven Cities subcontinent. It was located on a narrow isthmus between the Otataral and Talgai Seas. Fiddler described it as a lizard-infested, orange-bricked cesspool.[2]

The city was a primary destination for Tanno pilgrims from Seven Cities. Tanno Drakes brought pilgrims to the city under the protection of a Spiritwalker or Mendicant.[3] A pilgrim trail led from the city through the Talgai Mountains to the Holy City of Karakarang.[4]

The city's people were known as the Jelban.[5]

In Deadhouse Gates

Fiddler, Kalam, Crokus, and Apsalar passed through the city on their way from Darujhistan to Itko Kan via the Seven Cities subcontinent.[6]

In The Bonehunters

Taxilian fled the Bluetongue Plague by taking a drake bound for Rutu Jelba. Two days from their destination they were attacked by the Third Edur Imperial Fleet.[3]
