The imposing town turned stronghold of Kalash in the south stands on the volcanic plains in the shadow of the Mountains of Fire.

Formerly a trading hub between Almitra and old Qadaq, the sun is now darkened by volcanic activity, and the heat given off keeps the nights warm and the days sweltering hot.

Although the lands beyond the new mountains are lost to the Khan’s invasion, this former caravan hub has found new purpose in guarding the rocky borders of Theocracy lands against any incursion in the south.

Most Janissary units spend some time posted to guard the borders, whether they like it or not. The forces trained here include the feared daughters of Kalash, who use powerful handguns in their fight against the enemies of the faithful.
