Parta is the traditional capital of Parthe . The first and oldest city in Parthecan history, more modern or worldly rulers prefer to ignore the "rotten city" while more traditional ones settle the throne more firmly in its ancient palaces. It hosts the Pajarceun, or the Grand Royal Archives, the original of Jarceun which now span Partheca. It remains an important city, especially when trading with Kitaluk and other eastward-facing cities and colonies. The Royal Roads all converge here.
