The Great Plains
The Great Plains are framed by the Craggy Cliffs before the Cinderlands, the Stony Mountains, and the Sea. The great plains are only accessible through Ashwood Forest, the Sea and river estuary.
The crossroads between Kaer Maga, Korvosa, Beilsweif and Melfesh is a hotbed of highway bandit activity. Caravans and small groups travel with city guards or protection of some sort. No support means you must hide in the shadows or not travel at night. Traveling long distance means camping one night or more in the plains. By horse travel between a town or two is insignificant. By boat or river craft its also much farther distance covered in one night.
