Rhuidean (RHUY-dee-ahn)
A great city in the Aiel Waste which has been abandoned for nearly three thousand years. Any man wanting to be a clan chief or any woman wanting to be a Wise One must enter Rhuidean and be tested inside a great ter'angreal deep within the city. Men may enter only once, women twice. Only one man in three survives his journey to Rhuidean. The survival rate for women is considerably higher for both visits. Its location is a secret closely guarded by the Aiel. The prescribed penalty for a non-Aiel entering the valley of Rhuidean is death, though some who are favored (such as peddlers or gleemen) might simply be stripped naked, given water skins, and allowed to attempt to walk out of the Waste.
The city is once again inhabited by the Aiel and a great lake occupies one end of the valley of Rhuidean, fed by an underground ocean of fresh water, and in turn feeding the only river in the Waste.
Rhyagelle (rheye-ah-GEHL)
