There are countless sartlar kraals across the Guarded Land, each constructed according to a precise plan specified by the Wise. These form a grid which spreads 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 the road, along with the transverse, ‘earth’ roads they stand gurard upon, form the corners and edges of large squares in the kraal grid.
