Alakut Island has bridges that link to Odaga Island, Kadasep Island, and Bazniuz Island. The bridges are open when the Syth isn't frozen and people can't get to their destinations by skating or using a sleigh.
In 1039 KF, the Alakut council turned down Bennat Ladradun when he asked for more funding for his fire brigade on Alakut. Thinking it unnecessary, they refused. Ladradun later vengefully set a fire in the home of a councilmember's mistress.
