I was thinking that it would be interesting to make roundships travel
twice as slow as galleys. In return for the much larger capacity of
a roundship, speed is sacrified.

However, this isn't really accurate. Since galleys were mostly rowed,
and roundships were sailed, roundships were actually faster. Although
galleys were sometimes sailed...

>>> Make roundships go half as fast, Yes or No?

Also, the capacity of a roundship seems a bit too large. Perhaps
roundships should have a capacity in the 15,000-20,000 range, instead
of 25,000. Currently, roundship may carry fives times as much as
a galley. Perhaps a 1:3 or 1:4 ratio would be better.

>>> Shrink roundships, Yes or No?
