The Desert Pass
The Desert Pass is one of the few safe ways linking the deserts of the west to the Swamplands of central Latakar. Protected by fortifications, the bridges of the pass offer a way to cross the mountain range. The bridges are truly enormous, remnants of bygone ages.
They are large enough to link mountains together through enormous, deep valleys. They are so wide that whole forts have been built in the middle of them, so as to keep them secure. In the entire length of the Desert Pass, a traveller will find almost two dozen forts of varying sizes, situated along a bridge or at the end of one. The most obvious function of the forts is for toll collection purposes. The population that lives in the forts - a mix of various people, the majority being cousins of the tribes of the deserts but also many others - uses the toll collections to survive.
