Bas-Lag Wiki

Neovadan is a land-locked city-state on Rohagi, located in a bend of the Dancing Shoe Mountains.


Despite being seperated from the nearest body of water, Gibbing Water, by the Dancing Shoe Mountains, Neovadan is known to have a population of vodyanoi. Goat-porridge is a common meal there, and some adventurers make their livings through thievery in the city.


  • Neovadan is mentioned in each of the Bas-Lag novels; however, it is never described in detail.
