The great tradeways are roads cut into the Stone Wastes, with roads of white stone marked with runes. In this fallen age, only the Al Avagh have the secrets to extend and maintain the tradeways. When one travels on the tradeways, monsters will not attack.
Tradeways are carefully picked and lined with white, polished stones chiselled with runes in the tongue of the Khepheru, that have power to protect the roads. Still, the distant sounds can be heard at night – of things clacking and snapping in the Stone Wastes, voices chanting in some inhuman tongue, melancholy screams of those lost in an age where the canals were run with gentle rivers, and the scarred landscape was rich with the bounty of grass and flowering trees.
