Curhouse is ariding of Armada. The riding is a democracy ruled by the Democratic Council, which oversees an orderly system of courts. The only member of the council named in the novel is a woman named Vordakine.


Curhouse borders Garwater and shares the exotic Croom Park with it.


The Curhouse council is opposed to the Lovers' commandeering of Armada's route, and attempt to do something about it along with Dry Fall's Brucolac.

Notable Industries[]

Several of the city's most respected (although Curhouse-biased) journals are published here, including The Flag and Council's Call, respectively concerned with news and politics.
