Capital of the Maakenmire. Unknown to most followers of the Lone Wolf series (unless of course they happen to have the Magnamund Companion), the Maakenmire is home to an intelligent species of reptilians, and V'Ka, hidden in the swamp, is their capital.
It is also the home of the Gourgaz, often used as lieutenants in the armies of the Darklands, and of numerous rare herbs and the like.
It is left a mystery whether these intelligent reptilians are in fact the Gourgaz, or whether they are related to them in some way. It is at least conceivable that the Darklord-aligned Gourgaz are renegades or have been tricked or induced in some way.
