Vhais is the capitol city of Tanas, located about 50 miles south of Sonekha. The city once straddled the Pascatin River, but repeated damage from multiple Collision events caused so much destruction on the eastern side that the structures there remain mostly abandoned, the population keeping to the western side. In the center of the city is the Council chambers, where the Council of Elders reside and hold court, the structure the only one on Tanas that is two storeys (all others are single storey buildings). Within the Council building was one of the two remaining starglass Gates on Tanas, though it was destroyed during the events of Return to Tanas, leaving just one hidden Gate on Tanas (in the mountains near Sonekha), effectively isolating the Isle from the rest of the world as Tanas has no ships of any kind.
