The Free Cities of Zakhara were a group of city-states along the north coast of that continent.[2]

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.[2]

GovernmentEdit

The Free Cities' independence was limited mainly by the nearby city of staunch Qudra and its mamluks.[2] 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.[2] They were also the first stopping point for travellers from Faerûn.[2][3]

TradeEdit

Main products of the Free Cities included clothing, rice, agates, semi-precious stones,[4] pottery, coffee,[5] indigo dye, purple cloth and clothing,[6] and trade in northern goods[5][6][7][8][3].
