The Free Cities of Zakhara were a group of city-states along the north coast of that continent.[1]

GeographyEdit

Each of these city-states was located at the mouth of a river. The cities were Hafayah, Liham, Muluk, Qadib, Umara, and Utaqa. They swore fealty to the Grand Caliph in Huzuz, but maintained a larger degree of independence than other parts of Zakhara.[1]

GovernmentEdit

The Free Cities' independence was limited mainly by the nearby city of staunch Qudra and its mamluks.[1] The Free Cities seemed less civilized than other Zakharan urban centers, as they had to contend with wild tribes on land to the south and pirates on sea.[1] They were also the first stopping point for travellers from Faerûn.[1][2]

TradeEdit

Main products of the Free Cities included clothing, rice, agates, semi-precious stones,[3] pottery, coffee,[4] indigo dye, purple cloth and clothing,[5] and trade in northern goods[4][5][6][7][2].
