Balduq (バルドゥーク?), also known as the the Prison City, is a major city located in the Gllia-Erdlingen, a Romun province located in the northeast Esterior peninsula. It serves as the setting for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox.

Background Edit

Balduq owes its alias of Prison City to its enormous prison, surrounded by castle walls and a moat. Traces of the city's history as a walled city can still be found throughout. Balduq serves as an important hub in this area, for which the city is lined with inns, bars, and shops for travelers and commerce. These facilities have recently expanded with a theater and public bathhouses.
