Ah, the DragonNewt roads. Scary stuff. I'd have to be desperate to consider using one.

Yep. Magic road but not a heroquest.

Looks like a Magic Road to me. A HeroQuest path usually has a goal and an objective to it. Magic Roads are probably as dangerous as well. Unless you are using the rather tame Daughter's Roads that the Lunar Heroine Who's Name I Cannot Spell laid down.
