Kantara is the capitol and the largest city in the Darja Clan. Originally, it was a a simple mountain town, but it grew rapidly after gold was discovered there in the late 380s.

Many families struck it rich there including the House of Sparna, who would rule the city and the clan until 451 when a revolt started by an ex-soldier named Clay overthrew the nobles and established himself as leader of this chief mining city in the heart of the mountains of New Armes.
