Rihla's Passage

An north-south trade route that exists between the Kingdom of Cumerin and the Kingdom of Ajwain. Eldwyn’s Ledge at the edge of the Cauldron is roughly the midway point. It is named after the famous paladin Ibn Rihla, who originally started the sojourn as a religious journey of enlightenment and divine knowledge. Ibn Rihla left the city of Baharat with spices and oils that had never been seen in the northlands. On his journey he stopped in the spot that would eventually become Eldwyn’s Ledge.

When he finally arrived in Cumerin 40 days later, he told tales of theretofor unknown monsters, treacherous roads, and other dangers. He had also achieved the enlightenment he sought, and founded a school of worship in the city of Carawa. As part of the teachings, his students took annual religious journeys, tracing the footpath back to Baharat. The popularity of these journeys grew, and merchants began travelling the route with the pilgrims to establish trade between the two kingdoms.

After his death some 40 years later, no one felt a successor was worthy so the school was closed. After a serious fire destroyed a large quarter in Carawa, including the site of Ibn’s school, all that now remains is a small stone spire bearing the name “Ibn Rihla.” An exact duplicate of the monument was made in Baharat. Some people believe that kissing one stone and traveling Rihla’s Passage to the second stone, and planting another kiss will result in a lifetime of good luck.
