What do you consider a reasonable "vast distance"? 20 provinces (ocean
or land)? 50 provinces?
I figure one can move at a top speed (without gatecraft) of 7.5 provinces/
month. But I've been thinking that the current map is too large, and that
perhaps it should be 50x50 or so for the beta test. But this would mean
that a route could be at most 3-4 months long.
It just occured to me that Gatecraft really screws trade. Why build big
ships when you can teleport?
