If you ask anyone in Winterhaven or Fallcrest about the Old Kings Road, they'll tell you that there hasn't been a king in the area for as long as anyone can remember, just that the name stuck. If you probe further no one knows which king built the road, or which it was named for. However if you travel north of Winterhaven along the Cairngorm Peaks, up a rarely used section of the road you will come upon the Old Kings. These ancient stone monoliths resemble stylized chess kings with iron crowns upon their brows. Standing on either side of the road their silent forms look north, and lean slightly away from the road.
The Old Kings
Any traveler that leaves an offering with the Old Kings may find their way cleared of troubles. The chance of random encounters drops by half for the next 12 hours while on the road, and any encounters that do occur receive a +1 bonus to the reaction roll.
