The capital city, named after the desert, is located on the largest oasis. A center of technological advancement, the people of Makarai are an inquisitive and curious folk, always seeking knowledge for knowledge’s sake. Where it differs from the magical haven of Ifanriel is where that knowledge is practically used. While they enjoy their magical learning, those of Makarai prefer to build machines and pursue sciences for the overall benefit of everyone. The city itself is large and maze-like, resulting in many visitors getting extremely lost during their first, second, possibly even third visit. To help alleviate this issue, there are plenty of maps posted across the city to aid in directing people to where they need to go. There is always something to do in a city so vast, it is almost overwhelming to those who are not accustomed. The sound of smithies working away at their forges to the delighted chatter of the taverns echo throughout the days and nights, which contributes to the bustling, busy atmosphere of this large desert city.
