[NA-W]The Rìoghail Tradeway

The Rìoghail Tradeway

The Rìoghail Tradeway is a trade network, linking cities from every kingdom via an extensive roadway. Cities are free to trade and work together, regardless of border. This ensures that if one city has a surplus of something, they can easily sell that excess to another city that may need more of that good. The roads exist to ensure both the fastest and safest route in between major cities, promoting travel just as much as trade.

Of course, the roads are also beneficial in times of war as well. Armies can quickly travel across the roads, rushing to either invade or defend in the fastest time possible. The roads will also be linked to many strongholds, run through fortified locations, and be patrolled by guards, so an invading army can't exploit the roads to lead a sudden charge undetected.

Now the next question I can already hear you typing up; 'But Yorick, roads are already a thing! Why do we need this?' Well here's exactly why:

  1. You are correct, roads do exist. But by no means are they the most direct route of travel, nor are they safe or even fully paved for that matter.

  2. These roads will link the partners listed down below specifically. That way if you're going from one major city to another, you don't have to detour through seventeen other towns, get ambushed by bandits in every second forest, and add an extra week to your travel times, provided you actually make it alive.

  3. These roads are guarded and well maintained along the entire length of them, to make them the choice route of merchants, travelers, soldiers, and anyone else.


So roads and all that is all fun and good, but what's a trade network without trade partners? Here's a list of everybody who's signed on as a proud partner.

Please note: This list is incomplete, a couple partners are missing, as well as several links. I'll be constantly updating this so stay tuned for improvements and growth.

Massive edit dropped. Made sure everybody who has a link is now linked, and got rid of all the pictures. They were a bit too cluttery. Will be alphabetizing and sorting between counties, cities and duchies to the best of my ability at a later date.
