The Kings' Highway is a massive roadway that spans the southeastern portion
of the mainland.
In the depths of time it was built by the kingdoms of Q'thelas, Dunnhearst
and Jo'Kerin as a trade route between the various realms. Q'thelas and
Dunnhearst fell, and Jo'Kerin's trade shifted towards Ralnoth, but the
majority of the Kings' Highway remains intact.
In modern times, the Highway ranges from a paved road to little more than a
trail marked by rocks. It spans east from Daigaku-Tatami and its colonies
across the salt flats into the Naginag Combine, where it turns north out of
Zin to meet up with the Jo'Kerin pass on the other side of Natchsburg.
