Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #218
August 7th, 2023
Name: Deep Dive on a Site of Interest: Along the Trave-Inari Highway - Part 1
Location: Across the plains of Ceannar connecting the towns of Reston and Southport
Population (approx.): Varies
Brief: The bulk of Ceannar is the rolling prairies extending west of the Flattop Hills until one reaches the border with Noldrune. It is crisscrossed by the highways constructed by the builder-magicians of the Trave Peoples. One runs from the Noldrune border south of the hills, passing through the hub at the capital of Trave County, Reston (#154), and continuing to Overlook (#8) in the great pass between the Flattop Hills and finally reaching the sea at East’arbor (#117). The second of the great Trave roads runs from Reston south through Trave and Inari Counties to end at Southport (#154).
Geography: The Trave-Inari Highway runs a bit east of south approximately 140 miles across the great plains of Ceannar. The sites and nearby settlements are scattered to either side of the road, sometimes connected by local arteries, other times by simple footpaths or hunting trails. The roads are patrolled by the outriders of the City-State and maintained by Trave chapters of the Travellers Guild. A settlement, whether as large as a village or as simple as a caravansary, can be found everyone day’s journey on foot (about 15 miles).
