Inhabitants: Ant. Tarkesh have pale white skin and dark hair.
Tark is situated in the south-eastern corner of the Lowlands. This places them close to both the Spiderlands and the Scorpion tribes of the Dryclaw desert. Perhaps due to this influence, the slave trade is more common in Tark than other Ant city-states and their markets draw attention from Scorpions, Spiders and Wasps. The walled city has a small foreigners quarter and stringent checks on any who wish to enter. As a consequence, a semi-permanent shanty-town of traders forms a distance away from the gate.
