The C'thai'ran Cycle
Cimbar is the nominal capital of Chessenta.
In times past, the region of Chessenta was ruled entirely by the city state of Cimbar, under King Nichlion I, but in recent years Cimbar’s dominion over the region has receded to the point where they are now locked in heated competition with all of the other cities in Chessenta to be the most influential. Cimbar’s claim has been weakened by the overthrow of the monarchy in 1284 DR, the other cities had never liked the kings and queens of Cimbar but at they respected their power. Very few now respect the ruling council and thus the city’s influence has shrank, however, Cimbar remains the most profitable, allowing them to maintain a well regimented army, and thus remains the capital of the region.
