The City of the First Sunrise, Barak-Nar is the largest and most successful of the Kharadron sky-ports. It is they who have the Steering Hand, for they have the most delegates upon the ruling council of the Geldraad.
The denizens of Barak-Nar are highly practical and the least superstitious of their kind. The city is best known for its many leading science academies, its great wealth, and its history of producing dynamic leaders. Bold, fearless, and progressive, the folk of Barak-Nar were the first of the Kharadron Overlords to aggressively pursue trade agreements with non-duardin settlements, and it was they who established the best-patrolled trade routes, routinely marking the sky-paths with zonbeks well-garrisoned glowbeacon lighthouse docks.
