Gilad is a southern princedom. In 728 there was an incident involving a Sunrunner misdiagnosing a wealthy merchant. The debate whether Gilad or Goddess Keep got to try the Sunrunner was taken before the High Prince, who decided that it was his jurisdiction as neither Gilad's Prince nor the Lord of Goddess Keep could come to an agreement. Further, Rohan ordered a school for physicians to be built so that incidents such as this wouldn't arise again.


  • Medawari: The royal seat of Gilad.
  • School of Physicians: Established in Gilad between 728 and 737 by Rohan. The plan for this school was set in motion after a Sunrunner in Gilad had tried to cure an ailing merchant, but brewed the medicine incorrectly. Before this school medicine was taught at Goddess Keep and through apprenticeship, though there was no set standard of proficiency for physicians. This school was built during the long peace of the Continent. This school, along with the Medri, offered younger sons a new and purposeful lives. The Sunrunners embraced the new school of physicians and even changed the eighth faradhi ring to be reserved for Master Physicians.
