Trouble in the Dales
Quat, the capital of the Sea of Sands, is known as Glorious Golden Quat, and serves as the seat of power for The Coin Lords. The city possesses a canyon-like harbor and accommodates immense trading volume (both by sea and land) from within the Sands as well as abroad. (blurb about trade destinations) Quat is also renowned for academies of mathematics, philosophy, and healing, making it known as a center of learning. One of the most unique and notable of these is the Desert Thistle Academy which has perfected advanced healing practices and provides a Quat advantage over The Dales. Quat contains the largest camel population in the world.
