Trade and Toll
A short distance from the Medieval town of Tigelfáh the soldiers of Baron Hreaðemús man the toll on the road from the mountain.
The toll sits on the north west bank of the river Tigelfáh and serves as a good place to collect the toll money from those coming to Tigelfáh.
The mountain pass which crosses the river leads to the villages high up the river and is the only route into town for those living in the mountain wanting to trade.
The river, just under half a mile from the city walls, is also at its nearest to the town and the best place to bring the fish caught on the river into town for the market. The soldiers keep a watchful eye on the fishermen, who are known for their craftiness in avoiding the toll.
As for the toll money itself, it is for the war. The king has called on the nation to fund another war on the continent, leaving his nobility to raise money however they choose. With the wealthy town of Tigelfáh in The Earl of Léonas land he misses no opportunity to take money from the hard efforts of others.
