Kuasta, one of the three towns across The Spine, is one of the strangest places in Alagaesia. Isolated from the rest of the continent entirely, it's inhabitants have strange and unheard of superstisions and customs. One such custom is to knock on the doorframe when leaving or entering a room. The city has finally started to get a litle attention, as people go to see the childhood home of Brom, Eragon's father. The town has a church, a dock, a strange inn, and also a forge.
