Roads vs Ships vs Flying
Thu, 25 Aug 1994 23:31:58 -0400 (EDT)

The discussion on road movement rates brings up an interesting
point here currently. Why is it that flying and sailing take
the same amount of time?

If we stick with John's suggestion of 3 days per province max,
or 10 provinces per turn, then I would suggest upping sailing
to 4 days per, seeing as ancient vessels, on a good day, could
do 5 knots, and riding a horse at 5 mph is easily done in moderate

Although a ship arguably travels in a straight line, a mounted
rider actually would ride farther, but a ship is going 24 hrs
a day, and a rider needs to stop and sleep. Hmmmm.

You guys got any ideas on this?
