Kamadan, Jewel of Istan as it appears when Wintersday is celebrated.

Kamadan is the home port for the mighty Istani navy, and the main point of landfall for ships from nearby Kourna, as well as those traveling from Cantha, Tyria and the Battle Isles. Its deep harbor is sheltered from seasonal storms by a ridge of hills to the south. Built around relics and statues from the days of the Primeval Kings, Kamadan has earned the title, Jewel of Istan.

Sofie and James[edit]

James: "Same procedure as last year, Miss Sofie?"
Sofie: "Same procedure as every year, James."

Alki and Tuhnan[edit]

Alki: "You know dear, we really should go visit our family for Wintersday."
Tuhnan: "Which family? Mine or yours?"
Alki: "I'd say both, but the truth is they're too far apart."
Tuhnan: "You're right. How about your sister in the Halls of Chokhin?"
Alki: "All she and her family do is sit around on their rumps and talk about stuffy theories and "white papers." I want to visit someone fun."
Alki: "Is your brother still living in Cavalon? Maybe we could go see him."
Tuhnan: "Yeah....he wrote me the other day. Said he was joining a turtle caravan. The freak."
Alki: "I guess he fell off that "other" wagon. *sigh* How about your aunt in Yak's Bend?"
Tuhnan: "No way. She still pinches my cheeks every time she sees me. It was fine when I was a kid, but I'm forty years old for Grenth's sake. Hey, Auntie. Leave my cheeks alone!"
Tuhnan: "And besides that, do you know how cold it is in Yak's Bend this time of year? No way. What about your uncle in Lion's Arch?"
Alki: "We were almost trampled to death last time."
Tuhnan: "I got it! We can go visit my cousin Vini on Shing Jea Island! You know...the hotshot city laywer with the thick accent."
Alki: "The last time we went there he kept trying to feed us those grit things. What the heck are grits, anyway?"
Tuhnan: "I don't know and I don't want to find out. You know, it would be a real shame for us to miss the festival here in Kamadan."
Alki: "They did a terrific job decorating this year. And you just know that all the ships will be charging extra to go anywhere."
Tuhnan: "I tell you what darling, let's just stay here and enjoy the festival."
Alki: "That sounds wonderful! We should invite our family here next year...."
Tuhnan: "I just realized something, honey. Our family is filled with freaks and wierdos. Let's just spend it with each other, deal?"
