The Hei of Moghadam has one of the largest manors in Thebes. Built on a single level, the manor is massive in scale and situated, on the furthest edge of the Mabsoot District, where the rich area of the city meets the river, allowing for a private tributary dock to pull directly into their home. This allows for easy river travel to and from the capital.
