The vast wealth of the princedom of Elkinridge can be witnessed by travelers, merchants, and adventurers, firstly by the Grand Traverse, a walled and heavily guarded set of trade-routes running the length of the kingdom, providing an indispensable conduit for trade, armies and travelers. The walled roads are wide enough to march 100 men abreast, cobbled, smooth and well maintained. Catwalks link guard stations at intervals of 1000 feet. The ten foot high walls on either side bare placards indicating the direction of travel, distance traveled. The traverse includes a vast network of lochs and canals bridging the land between the vast inland sea, and the uncharted oceans beyond.
