Noble Houses of Arrabar

Trade[edit | edit source]

At a key location in the Vilhon Reach, Arrabar stood at the end of two key trade roads: the southern Golden Road and the Emerald Way that ran across Chondath and ended at Hlath. These made the city a center for Vilhon trade, and kept it wealthy.[1]

Industry[edit | edit source]

The people of Arrabar largely engaged in trade, crafting, and fishing, as well as mercenary work as part of mercenary companies. These included both private armies that were permanently stationed in the capital and companies that were only based in the city and rested there between assignments in other lands.[1] Among these were the Sapphire Crescent.[5]

Military[edit | edit source]

Thanks to mercenaries, Arrabar was quite strong militarily, and it could pose a threat in any land.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

The city was ancient and sprawling, though the people kept it tidy, clean, and maintained.[1]

The grandest structure in Arrabar was the Generon, the palace of the Lord of Arrabar. It comprised a stately dome that glittered with gold and silver. It was circled by barracks and fortifications, staffed by Lord Wianar's personal army.[1]

Lord Wianar permitted the Red Wizards of Thay to develop an enclave within the city.[1]

Culture[edit | edit source]

Like many in the Reach, the folk of Arrabar were wary of wizards.[1]


History[edit | edit source]

Arrabar was destroyed during the Spellplague.[6]
