Cunaxa is one of the northern princedoms and sits directly atop the Desert. It is a desolate land where little grows except Merida and a hatred and envy of the Desert. It possesses a powerful merchant class, which consumes much of the Prince's political energy; the rest is taken up by the Merida, who constantly clamor for an attack on the Desert. Cunaxan weavers were one of the few guilds who had an actual school for their apprentices.

  • Castle Pine: Royal seat of Cunaxa. Unlike other princely Keeps, Castle Pine is rather run down and the city appears to have fallen on hard times.
  • Catchwater: A Keep held by Merida. It was confiscated after the Vellanti War and given to the Isulk'im.
  • Gracine Manor: A small holding; it's where Meiglan was born and raised before she was taken to Castle Pine.
