The Serpent Kingdoms
Firesteap Pass was created after the founding of the three kingdoms to help drive not just trade, but to stimulate relations and herald peace between the kingdoms themselves and abroad. This trade road is maintained through funds supplied by the the two capitals Ormpetarr and Arrabar, as well as funds from Innarlith. The pass itself is finely cut cobblestone, and cuts over one of the lowest parts of the Firesteap mountains. To keep the path over the mountains smooth, magic users from all over were hired to magically mold the stone into a smooth road.
Each kingdom is charged with the safety of travelers on the pass, and as such, have a traveling contingent of soldiers who travel the route. Their main base is Fort Arran in Sespech, with small stations in Innarlith, Shamph, and Nun.
