The Triplet Cities were ruins along the west side of the great river between the First and Second Cataract. They were named Odd the First, Odd the Second, and Odd the Third. Two hundred years before the Black Company traveled south under the captaincy of Croaker, they fought the Pastel Wars against the Paingod and his city of Cho'n Delor. The Triplet Cities were ultimately victorious, but sacrificed themselves to destroy the evil.
The survivors of the Pastel Wars either fled to or founded the walled city of Idon.
