(population: 50,000) capitol city of the realm of Vilzar, located at the southern base of the Il’Thrak Mountains. The city 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 Il'Vak lies alongside both banks of the sacred Ak'Tai River; the only major source of water in the Sea of Sand.

Thousands of years ago, this Vilzari city was once called Tanif; the capital city of ancient Shorafa; the Shorafi people built the city and the great pyramid of Velok within, but almost all knowledge of that ancient culture is now lost.
