Gilead was the barony seat of New Caanan, capital of the Affiliation, and the hub of In-World. The city was constructed by Arthur Eld to include several defensive measures such as being surrounded by a defensive wall, as well as concealed spike traps and mechanical blades. Gilead’s feudal government ruled much of In-World and Mid-World. Gilead was eventually razed by John Farson and his rebels.
