Twelve Heavenly Paces of the Colossus
Pilgrimage of Twelve Paces
The Pilgrimage of Twelve Paces is a journey that must be taken by anyone who hopes to participate in the Tournament of the Crimson Crown. There are twelve locations that range from the southeastern shores of Rhodanthus all the way to the peak of the most dangerous mountain along the northwestern range, Mount Serpentsplitter.
Legend has it that each location on the the Pilgrimage was one of the twelve paces that Rhodan took as he charged the serpent primordial Sthenys. Followers of Rhodan see this Pilgrimage as a way to retrace the steps of their god, and the most devout have taken it even when there is no Tournament to be held.
It is said that certain trials await those who seek to fight in the Tournament, although the nature of these tests are unclear.
