Located on the outskirts of the Flaying Desert the Shimmering City is truly a sight to behold. Alabaster towers rise over the adobe and rock houses of this massive city. Caravans are constantly entering and exiting, bringing their trade wares to and from the city. This city serves as a trade hub betweein Calenfor, Smoot, Port Highland and the western world. Once ruled by Sultan Muar the city has now fallen into the hands of Sultan Abda’rul, an efreet. Sultan Abda’rul runs the city tightly and firmly, encouraging trade to bring riches to his city which he quickly squanders. Taxes have risen immensely and the gap between poor and middle class has increased dramatically. Large portions of the outskirts of the city have become warrens for the poor and unemployed, while the inner city is full of villas and mansions for the rich men.
