The Town is a town in the Great Blight, located not far from the valley of Thakan'dar at the foot of Shayol Ghul. It is a sprawling, ramshackle settlement that has existed for over two thousand years and was constructed by forced labor. It appears to follow some of the same rules as Shayol Ghul itself; for example, channeling can be restricted to those with the Great Lord's favor.
Isam was raised in the Town from a very young age, and still uses it as a "base camp" when he is in the waking world. The Town also contains a great percentage of Samma N'Sei and their relatives.
