The Monkey-Taur Road is no longer used except by explorers and brigands. When Chariotearn was destroyed, it fell out of use. The road is a spur off the Sorrow Road that heads west into the Northern Hordelands. It continues through the towers evergreens of the Laucentar then into grasslands until it reaches the river Ithen. Before the devastation wrought by the 1642 eruption of Traeulf, a ferry at a small Sig-Lorm village, took travelers to the west bank. From there it was a straight shot to Chariotearn.
