Duskendale has cobbled streets, and is surrounded by small fishing villages. Rocks protect it from the waves of the ocean. Dun Fort is the castle that overlooks the city, held by House Rykker.
Duskendale was originally held by House Darklyn. It was passed to House Rykker after The Defiance of Duskendale, a battle in which Aerys II Targaryen was held captive by House Darklyn and rescued by Barristan Selmy. After this, House Darklyn was destroyed. The entire city was thus handed to House Rykker.
