Urupa is a city at the mouth of the Coil River, on the coast of the Aras Sea. Founded after the Scourge by the servivors of several nearby kaers, it serves as a gateway to lands beyond Barsaive, and many of the larger merchant houses from Throal and else-where in Barsaive have a presence there to get access to goods from Indrisia, Cathay and other foreign lands.
Urupa is one of Barsaive's fastest growing cities. It is led by a citizen's council, one from each of the city's seven districts, supported by a staff of scores of clerks and magistrates. They provided some assistance to Throal in the war, though their location in the southeastern corner or the province kept them from any direct attacks or damage to the city.
