Thak City is the capital of Carthak. It was originally named Thak's Gate. The Imperial University of Carthak and Imperial Palace of Carthak are located just outside of the capital.


Imperial Coliseum

A major building of Thak City is their Imperial Coliseum. This is where gladiator fights occurred, and many citizens of Carthak went to watch as war prisoners and enemies fought to the death. Musenda Ogunsanwo battled in gladiator fights there. The stadium was large, and provided plenty of seats for spectators.[1][2]


In 451 HE, the Tortallan peace delegation visited Thak City.[3]
