A city made rich by trade from across Lake Encarthan, Caliphas has long been described as the very soul of Ustalav, which is perhaps what prompted the Eunuch Prince to move the capital there from Ardis. Caliphas is the largest city in all of Ustalav and has a tremendous impact on the surrounding land supporting most of the wineries and perfumeries that dot the land of the County of Caliphas.

Resting on the shores of Lake Encarthan allows Caliphas to take full advantage of that massive trade route and, as a consequence, Caliphas is a rich city, some might even say decadent. The city is also very cosmopolitan—a rarity in suspicious Ustalav—with many foreign travelers, some of whom never leave, though these disappearances are rarely noticed by the native population.
