The Burnt World of Athas - Khan's Urik

North and slightly east of Tyr, Urik sits with its tall buildings and mighty walls hungrily looking down upon the rest of the Table Lands. The free population in this city-state stands at 32,000, with again that many slaves. The city itself is one and two thirds miles on a side, which with all things being equal, would provide for a population density of one individual per 775 feet. This alone is testimony of Hamanu's vaulting ambition, and of his inability to live up to it. The city extends from Destiny's Kingdom, the mighty fortress that houses most of Urik's military, government, and Hamanu's palace. Around the city proper are another 11 client villages (including Makla) which easily produce at least another 32,000 people and slaves.
