There are countless sartlar kraals across the Guarded Land, each constructed according to a precise plan specified by the Wise. These form a grid spreading out on either side of the raised roads. In the diagram above, a part of this grid is shown, and running along its right edge is just such a raised road. Note how the watch-towers, along with the transverse tracks they stand guard upon, form the corners and edges of large squares in the kraal grid.
