The Great City of Kasra
The Great City of Kasra lays near the confluence of the Lower and Upper Fayeen River's, and directly alongside the Lower Fayeen River. It is a major port for the embarkation of the salt trade.
The famed red salt of Kasra got it's name because it is at the Port of Kasra where the salt leaves the Tahari Region.
The Salt is brought into Kasra from many secret pit's and mine's deep in the interior of the waste's. Kasra itself claims ownership of many of these red salt mine's.
Due to Kasra's major Trade Port, it's near stranglehold on both the red salt itself and the trade of it, and the vast wealth in tribute from Kasra's Vassal City of Tharna, it is the wealthiest City State in the Tahari Region and in all of Gor.
The Great City of Kasra is an old City, with a proud history.
It's Khan and it's Citizen's, proud, honorable Gorean's, who will allow no insult, no slight, no injury, however minor or "unintended", to one of it's own to go unpunished.
Let it be known to all, that any injury, any slight, any insult, visited upon Kasra, it's Khan , it's Cittizen's or even it's slave's, will be visited upon the transgressor one hundred fold.
"More broadly, order and structure in human life, stability in society, even, in a sense, civilization itself, depends on sanctions. A civilization must be willing to impose sanctions, and to impose them reliably and efficiently. A lapse in such resolve and practice is a symptom of decline, even of impending disintegration. Ultimately civilization depends upon power, moral and physical, upon, so to speak, the will of masters and the reality of the whip and sword." (Magicians of Gor, p.124)
"Good land is protected only by the swords of the strongest owners in the vicinity." (Tarnsman of Gor, p.27)
"A good fight, I have heard men of
the Tahari say, licking thier lips, justifies any cause."
Tribesmen of Gor, pg. 177
"In Gorean law, allegiances to a Home Stone, and not physical structures and locations, tend to define communities."

. "Even warriors long sometimes for the sight of their own flags, atop friendly walls, for the courtyards of their keeps, for the hearths of their halls. Thus admit the Codes." (Blood Brothers of Gor, p.306)
"Too often it seems it is the peaceful and innocent who are slaughtered. In this a lesson may be found that it may not be prudential to be either too peaceful or too innocent. One does not survive with wolves by becoming a sheep. T hat is only a short-cut to destruction." (Savages of Gor, p.89)
"They are Goreans. They are strong, and they are hard, and they will conquer you."
Tribesmen of Gor, p.12
. "The Ubar must contain within himself dark strengths. He must be capable of doing, as many men are not, what is necessary." (Explorers of Gor, p.243)
"It is seldom wise, incidentally, to impugn, or attempt to manipulate, the honor of a Gorean."
Mercenaries of Gor - Page 297
"Civilized men, the small and pale, the righteous, the learned, the smug, the supercilious, the weak-stomached and contemptuous, stand upon the shoulders of forgotten, bloody giants." (Beasts of Gor, p.31)
"You may judge and scorn the Goreans if you wish. Know as well, however, that they judge and scorn you. They fulfill themselves as you do not. Hate them for their pride and power. They will pity you for your shame and weakness." (Beasts of Gor, p.11
. "Why does the nibbling urt chatter and laugh at the larl? Is it because he himself is not a larl, or is it because he fears its paws?" (Explorers of Gor, p.229)
