(population: 53,000) Zakresh is a thriving seaport and the capitol of the powerful Hakeen Sultanate of Styr.

The city 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 harbor district. Zakresh is one of the busiest ports in the known world, and the most well-known on the sea-lanes of the Vhan Myr. Zakresh is strategically located about half-way between the continents of Avokhar and Za'har, so it gets a steady flow of ships traveling to and fro, in addition to the traffic from the other great ports north and west.

At any time, nearly 500 assorted merchant vessels from Al'Kethai, Ilsenene, Khalifar, Orel, Rhaygos, Malvatis, the Seven Cities of Brass, and Yamada can be found in its sprawling Blue Harbor.
