Kugisko is a city composed of various islands in northern Namorn, bordering the Syth. Daja visits it together with her teacher Frostpine in late 1039 KF. She also meets Zhegorz there. It was the location of arson attacks by Bennat Ladradun.
The islands making up the city are named as follows: North Fortress, Odaga, Alakut, Central Fortress, Least Fortress, Kadasep, Bazniuz, Shield, Airgi, Pearl Coast, Less Shipquarter, Greater Shipquarter.
Because Kugisko is situated so far north winters are very long here.
