The Lanvernite Succession
The Royal Road is one of the Realm’s most important overland trade routes. It runs from Hawkschester City in Hawkschester, through western Silverwyn into Lanverness and the metropolis of Greatminster. From there it proceeds south into Essington, through the cities of Waterford and Buckminster before terminating at the city of Southstead in Leftwich.
The Royal Road is patrolled at least once a day by mounted units—even more frequently near major cities. The four border crossings have tolling and taxing facilities on each side of the border. The patrols keep the Royal Road mostly safe from outlaws and highwaymen, but the occasional beast or monster can threaten travelers in remote areas.
