Zalut is called the City of Magicians. It is one of the few ancient cities of the Sorcerer-Kings that remain. It has been rebuilt, repaired and added to over the years by the Council of Magicians that now rule the city. It is believed they have located some of the Sorcerer-King’s old texts and have already translated some of these mysterious books and scrolls. It is possible that the Magicians also harbour descendants of the original Sorcerer-Kings or indeed that they themselves are their descendants.
Whilst Zalut does trade with the outside world, it is very rare that anyone is allowed past the port gates and into the city proper. Those that are allowed within have their movements around the city very severely limited and are closely watched. It is a sleeping city during daylight but comes to life during the night. The current High Magician is Dazzandroth Zant.
