The Dorogigora is a small road that runs from Chelyabinsk to Tarnovo in Irtysh Oblast, Matriarchate of Periaslavl. It allows for travelers coming from the east along the Irtysh River to save time going north on the North Road instead of going all the way down to Vladikavkaz.
Much of the road runs through heavy forests. The Budanov Clan and the Nesterov Clan, two families of woodcutters, live on opposite sides of the Dorogigora. Occasionally, their longstanding feud will affect travelers on the road.
