The Cracked Pot Trail was a pilgrim's pathway from the Gates of Nowhere in Reliant City to the Shrine of the Indifferent God in Farrog. The majority of the cobblestoned trail crossed the Great Dry, a large plateau of scrub grass and the occasional well or spring, and took around thirty-nine days to complete.
The final stage of the trail, called the Great Descent, passed three hundred feet down a cliff to a vast river. On the riverside were a cluster of shacks and a flat bottomed ferry operated by a ferryman from a stone jetty. The ferry left at dusk to take advantage of river currents that would bring travelers to Farrog by dawn.
