The Igiby Cottage is best known as the residence of Podo Helmer along with Nia Igiby and her children during the nine years following the Great War. Located just outside the town of Glipwood Township on the continent of Skree, the cottage was plain yet comfortable and soundly built near the edge of the cliffs above the Dark Sea of Darkness. Edd Helmer, Podo's father, constructed the cottage for his sweetheart Yamsa, whom he later married. Near the end of book one, the cottage gets burned down by the Fangs.
