The Fkashdad War
Pokrath is a port town in The Blasted Lands. Originally built for giants that have long since fled across the sea, the natives have had to make everything accessible to average-sized creatures, making most buildings into huge stone structures with many wooden platforms/stairs/etc.
Seeing as the blasted lands are in a state of anarchy, this city is a haven for criminal elements. Pokrath is great place to conduct less-than-reputable business, though not as good a place to lay low as Xalthuga. Trade of regular commodities does occur here as well, since the mountains and the standoff between the nations of Alkatru make overland trade to the rest of the Blasted Lands difficult.
