Huk-ata is one of the most populous destelt cities, located on the third "pillar" in the Pillars mountain range. Everyone living in the city is in servitude to High Master Krald Bonesplitter, even the other masters. It is possible for a destelt to have many masters, though they are only answerable to one at any time. It is a complex, hierarchical society, in which power is gained through battle or rukdats, which are gladiatorial contests.
Surrounding the city are wooden structures alight with soulflame, a magical fire that keeps the destelt masters' reavers (flying war chariots imbued with the souls of the dead) in control. It is an inhospitable landscape, which is part of the reason they often raid neighouring lands for food and supplies, earning them a fearsome reputation.
