Life in the Shomaal

This table lists the overland and oceangoing distances between the major cities of Jaraah. Direct airborne travel is approximately 80% of overland travel, unless serious mountains with lots of switchbacks are involved in which case air travel is much faster.

When Claacos Risk is medium, overland travel can be accomplished safely in large groups. This often means limiting movement to the pace of wagons.

When Claacos Risk is high, wagon speed is simply too slow for trips over 100 miles. Caravans that can fend of single attacks will eventually succumb to repeated attacks on a nearly daily basis. On high risk routes, heavily armed military or paramilitary groups can survive, or else smaller fast moving units who can break camp on a moments notice can elude the Claacos.
