Barak-Urbaz, the Market City, is one of the six major sky-ports of the Kharadron Overlords, sailing high in the Realm of Chamon.[1]

History

In the Age of Sigmar, the fleets of Barak-Urbaz sailed to the Realm of Aqshy to aid the Fyreslayers against the daemonic hordes of Tzeentch who were attacking nine different mountain ranges in order to secure strange crystals.[1]

A fleet is dispatched to clear cults of Slaanesh from the lands surrounding a small kingdom, but when the task is accomplished instead of the gold coins that the original pallid envoy promised, the duardin are instead presented with thousands of vertebral discs, each bearing a crude image of the Carrion King.[3]

Geography

Location

During the Age of Sigmar Barak-Urbaz floats above the Kingdom of Ayadah, north of Galhalla, the City of the Golden Domes and the Chimera Isles. [1]

Culture

The most cosmopolitan of the sky-ports with many trading partners and the ability to ferry people not only around the Realm of Chamon but into other realms through its secret realmgates. In addition, the most skilled and greatest number of Aether-Khemists dwell in Barak-Urbaz and help to ensure that the cloud mines are the most efficient. The skilled Codewrights have worked hard to ensure that Code claims to the best cloud banks are reserved for the city.[1]

Inhabitants

Barak-Urbaz is renowned as a cosmopolitan city even by the standards of the sky-ports of the Kharadron. As such Humans, Aelves, and Gholemkind are common sites among the city's outer districts. Though the city's population still remains predominantly Duardin.[6a]

Quotes

It was not the gods that saved us. It was not even our skyvessels, nor the thunder of our guns. It was compromise. It was negotiation. It was a transaction between equal parties. The Code saved us, and made us what we are.’ .

Grand Admiral Varsk Hunniger of Barak-Urbaz.[4b]
