Final Fantasy Infinite
The North Gate is the large checkpoint that allows passage from Lindblum through the mountains to the east, along the way to Cocoon. Travellers must check in and show that they have the proper authorization and access to travel.
It also provides a safe place to stay during the night, along with a few shops and stalls to resupply on food or essentials. It is a path carved through and along the mountains, and checkpoints and havens are provided at both ends.
