Sandeni is a city-state in Shados, divided in Hightown and Lowtown.

Sandeni has an enormous, semi-circular fortress, the Citadel, that houses the city government and provides defense against marauders.

Pursued through a land of shadow predators by the dreaded Black Rose, Elora Danan and her allies went there where they met the brownies Franjean and Rool, the eagles Anele and Bastian, and the young warrior-scribe Luc-Jon. Sandeni was besieged by mighty armies fueled by the Deceiver's sorcery, warrior wizards, and engines of evil magic.

Elora convinced the Sandeni people to continue the fight.
