Memnon is situated on the northern border of the Calim Desert, at the mouth of the River Agis, and along the Trade Way.
Memnon is a key trade city for Calimshan. It was that kingdom’s northernmost port, and nearly all caravanners on the Trade Way stopped there for at least a day regardless of whether they were traveling north or south, as Memnon is on the edge of the Calim Desert. The city thus served the function of a massive caravanserai, offering inns, stables, repairs, supplies, or entertainment to those having just survived the trek across the desert or to those about to make it.
Additionally, Memnon is a fishing town, producing both high quantity and high quality of fish, shrimp, and shellfish of many varieties.
