Too Far?

How far is too far?

About 9 hexes by road from Alda-chur, so almost fifty imperial miles. Or a bit over 70 km in relatable units of measurement.

Was Too Far originally called Arnhem during the Second Age?

There's a famous bardic epic about the Lunar invasion of Sartar, where a primadonna Lunar General Mon-tee, angry because he was relegated to the left shoulder of the Lunar advance, devised a daring (some would say ridiculous) plan using a picked force of Lunar Legionaries to drop from Moon Boats and seize an important river crossing at the Hem of Arn.  The original assault failed when the relief force of the Lunar Army couldn't quite reach them in time, but those Legionaries' heroism in defeat was even recognized by the Sartar forces that eventually overwhelmed them.

That assault failed largely because it was started at the eve of crescent go. The moonboats were without power for significant portions of the descending flight.

It wouldn't have been the 1602 invasion, but one of those against Terasarin. In 1602, the Household of Death went to the offensive along this road.
