Travel in the Western Marshes
Marsh Walkers are the main method of travel across the huge swamps and marshes found in the Western Marshes. They are gigantic flea creatures with huge spindly legs to traverse the hard terrain from town to town, ridden by their masters and travellers who pay for the safety provided. Travelling on foot is a dangerous proposition in the West Marshes, as creatures of all kinds haunt its swamps and terrorise its villages. The Marsh Walkers, while expensive, protect the traveller from most attacks, though they have been known to be taken down in the past.
