Since the War of the Red Seas, Merekul has been home to the Merovite ruling family, and nominal capital of the Humans of Lutharia. Merekul is famous for it’s Trade with the Eastern people of Araby. Traders in their Tall Ships have been seen daily, and goods such as Eastern Pack Beasts, Fine Rugs, and ancient Magicial Artifacts have been commonplace in the Markets of Merekul. Also from the east the Arabians have brought the custom of Fallowleaf, a Strong Narcotic which releases sweet heady vapous when burnt in a suitable Brazer. The custom has caught on, and Fallow Parlous can be found all over Merekul.

The few Scraps on information from travelers who have attempted to enter says that the cities defenses have been raised, and any within a mile of the city have been hunted down and either captured or killed. None have stayed long enough to find out which.
