(population: 50,000) An-Khara is the capitol city of the desert nation of Vilzar,

An-Khara is located along the banks of the sacred Shorafa River, and is the jewel of the Sea of Sand. This huge city was once part of the ancient empire of Shorafa.

An-Khara is home to the great palace of K’Nar Marom, and the great Pyramid of Velok. It is a city visited by few outsiders from the north, but feared by many. The city of An-Khara lies alongside both banks of the sacred Shorafa River; the only major source of water in the Sea of Sand.

In the center of the huge city is the Grand Plaza; on which sits the Great Pyramid. This enormous step-pyramid dominates the city skyline and is covered in exquisite black marble, inscribed with many magical runes to the Moon-Goddess of the Vilzari.

Many religious ceremonies are held here on a daily basis. Sadly, many of these ceremonies involve human sacrifices to appease the Vilzari Gods.



Thousands of years ago, this city was the capital of the ancient empire of Shorafa. Under the rule of An-Arak; the First Pharaoh of the Khufu Dynasty, the Shorafi people built this magnificent city and the great Pyramid within its center.

Today, much of the knowledge of that ancient culture has been lost.
