"[The] Crossroads is the the point where the two of the major roadways come to meet. In times past it has been an agricultural community and guard post. The Rallosian forces razed all structures here during The Age of War. Since then the Overlord has commanded the clearing of [The] Crossroads for use by travelers who cannot afford the traveler's tax in Freeport, but can pay for the guardian tax required here where The Freeport Militia maintains a guard post." - (Source: Bootstrutter's Field Guide to the Commonlands)
The guards at The Crossroads will attempt to kill non-Evil players.
