General Description

Khabar, Ael Khar’s grand city, is the hub of trade for all of Orton. The city caters to those people who travel through it. Near everything is for sale and the shops are abundant. Khabar is one of the most likely places to find an artifact or relic for sale. Its black markets are legendary.

Inhabitants of this city typically worship Baiperus. They believe that their city is far greater than any other on Thepa, and show this belief through lavishly enriching their multitudes of parks, waterways, and enhancements. They have spared nothing. This guilty pleasure is rooted deeply in Khabar’s limited resource of water. They are unable to expand their population, so they spend their money in other ways.

Khabar no longer grows in size; rather it stockpiles its gold seeking alternative ways to spend it. Currently, the city is commissioning explorers to travel north investigating the far reaches of the desert. Unfortunately, very few trailblazers return and those who have are empty handed. Khabarian interest to explore farther into their homeland is waning.

The city now considers other financial possibilities. Khabar’s leaders are debating the usage of their massive bank roll to search for mines in the nearby mountains or even to purchase an area from one of the two neighboring world powers. They have even considered an exploration of the volatile ocean to the south. All potential choices would be out of reach for most countries, but Ael Khar is not just any country. They are unreasonably rich.
