Raam is Burning.
Gulg, the forest city, is unique among the city-states in that its structures are not built, but grown. Primitive (most would say barbaric) their presence in one of the few remaining forests gives the citizens a view of Athas not normally seen by others. Gulg has heavy restrictions on outside trade, and limits what may and may not be sold there. Even allowed items tend to face heavy tariffs, making any desire to trade with Gulg minimal at best.
