A city made rich by trade from across Lake Encarthan, Caliphas[1] has long been described as the very soul of Ustalav, which perhaps prompted the Eunuch Prince to move the nation's capital there from Ardis. Caliphas is Ustalav's largest city and has a tremendous impact on the surrounding lands, supporting most of the wineries and perfumeries that dot the County of Caliphas.[2][3]


Resting on the shores of Lake Encarthan allows Caliphas to take full advantage of that massive trade route, and Caliphas is consequently a rich—some might even say decadent—city. The city is also very cosmopolitan, a relative rarity in suspicious Ustalav; many travellers visit from foreign parts, and some never leave, their disappearance rarely noticed by the population.[4]
