(population: 53,000) Located on the Styrian Islands, Zakresh is the capital of the Sultanate of Styr.

Because of its location as a halfway point between the continents of Azoria and Za'har, this bustling Hakeen seaport receives a steady flow of ships from ports all over the known world.

At any given time, nearly 500 assorted merchant vessels from Al'Kethai, Ilsenene, Khalifar, Orel, Malvatis, the Seven Cities of Bronze, and Yamada can be found in the city's sprawling "Blue Harbor," named for its sapphirine waters

Overlooking this sprawling city is the famed "Blue Palace," home to the Sultans of Styr for generations.

Zakresh also has a well-deserved reputation for the largest red-light district of any seaport in the Vhan Myr; with well over 100 brothels lining its seedy harbor district.
