Travel Time Committee Volunteers Needed!

Postby Phoenix on December 6th, 2011, 1:17 am

Yeah, totally posted my ideas in the Storyteller's coord thread and forgot to do so here. I'ma copy those cool charts you guys made. ^_^

Wind Reach

Land Routes from Wind Reach: West to East
Start Location End Location Distance/Travel Time/WIP
Wind Reach Lhavit v N/A v
Wind Reach Kalinor
Wind Reach Sultros
Wind Reach Alvadas
Wind Reach Falyndar
Wind Reach Denval


Departure Port Departure Region Destination Port Destination Region
Wind Reach Kalea Denval Kalea
Wind Reach Kalea Avanthal Taldera
Wind Reach Kalea Lhavit Kalea
Wind Reach Kalea The Northern Reaches Taldera
Wind Reach Kalea The Spires Taldera




Those are just the places that are in Wind Reach's immediate vicinity since that is all we need for the time being :) I couple I listed on both the land and sea routes since, depending on the time of year, travelers from Wind Reach only have certain transportation methods available.

Wind Eagles can roughly fly 150-300 miles per day, in perfect weather. Of course this number will fluctuate but that is the average.

Flight Routes from Wind Reach

Start Location End Location Distance/Travel Time/WIP
Wind Reach Lhavit 5-7 days
Wind Reach Kalinor 13-15 days
Wind Reach Sultros 6-8 days
Wind Reach Alvadas 13-15 days
Wind Reach Denval 2-3 days
Wind Reach The Spires 7-9 days
Wind Reach Avanthal 5-7 days
Wind Reach Karjin 10-12 days
Wind Reach Riverfall 16-18 days
Wind Reach Syliras 20-22 days



All of the travel times listed in the spoiler below are subject to change. I only added # of days in the first place so that I could get a sense of the distances when I (or others) go back and re-read this. I also know that I have a tendency to over-estimate, so these numbers might be a little insane :) Just keep that in mind when giving feedback.

More Detail :
Wind Reach- Very harsh winters that completely cut off any travel other than that by Wind Eagle. Even then, the harsh and sudden storms make air travel dangerous.

**Important note: Much of the traveling in Wind Reach may ONLY be in late spring, summer and early fall. NO feasible travel in winter should be considered without really good reason, as death would be very likely due to the conditions. Keep this in mind while reading the rest, as the time frames given exclude winter travel for the most part (for now, at least)

Sinkas Road is the only way by foot to get up or down the mountain. It starts in Thunderbay, which is obviously accessible by boat. The Road takes 4 days to travel with a caravan, cart or horse due to the twists turns and all together dangerousness of the trek and the fact that they have to stay on the road it’s self. Travelers who approach Wind Reach by foot CAN only take 2 days thanks to the stone steps that, while more direct than the windy road, take much more endurance. This road is only open during the summer and fall, as winter and most of the spring season still consists mainly of snow, ice and other weather related dangers.

Thunderbay is mostly a summer community and the most popular time for people to travel to and from Wind Reach via boat. Part of Storm Bay, leaving TB by boat is the quickest way to get to Denval, Denvali Harbor and the Passenger Quay. The sail from Thunderbay into Denvali harbor should take roughly a week or two, depending on the season. Stormy seasons such as fall, winter and spring can make the traveling time substantially longer. Traveling to Denval by land is not recommended, nor is it very feasible. The earth is completely untamed since the VT and the only path to and from the city leads south to Sultros. From Wind Reach, to Sultros and then Denval would be the quickest route. By Land, estimate 15-20 days because of the terrain.


Traveling from Wind Reach to Sultros would take 35-45 days at the least, due to the fact that Wind Reach is a peninsula of mountain ranges that has to be scaled before one even gets into the very depths of the unforgiving.
*Not much info in Sultros on how one enters the city from another. Bridges, tight passages etc are unknown as of right now.


The only entrance to Lhavit, which like WR sits atop mountain peaks, is a single path that sits near the Amaranthine River. Travellers with carts, horses or their own feet need a guide and Okamo to make it to the top of this path, but it can be done in a single day.

Travelling to Lhavit from WR is done by land and would feasibly take longer than from WR to sultros, again because of the terrain, possibly 40-45 days in good weather. Little is developed around Lhavit so this information may not be correct. If the river that runs between WR and Lhavit is traversable, that would shorten the journey. If travellers have to go around the river, it lengthens the journey more towards 45 days.


From WR to Alvadas would take the longest of the Kalea region, taking almost a whole season, 60-70 days. Because the Gaping Maw is an illusion most likely created to protect the actual entrance of the city, it is hard to tell which way into the city takes the longest.


Kalinor is the second furthest from Wind Reach and would take roughly 50-60 days to get there. However, it would be very unlikely that Inartans would travel to the Symnestra’s web-filled city.

To be added: Karjin, The Spires, Avanathal and possibly Syliras.


Where would Inartans Travel? (in progress, feel free to give imput!!!)

Lhavit is an enticing place to visit due to it’s uniqueness and it’s culture, as well as the history and knowledge it boasts. Along with Denval for it’s food and Sultros for it’s trade opportunities these three are the most likely that Inartans will visit.



Thoughts please.

For right now I've only stolen the template and entered the cities that are feasible to travel to without encountering another city. Once my finals are over I'll rock out the travel times, I might add another column to include approximate distances since I'll have to calculate those anyways.

Update: Lets not worry about distances just yet. Let's get everything LISTED and in neat charts like Caoin suggested. I think that's easiest for players to work with. Once we get the charts done, we'll start filling out distances based on our Zeltiva to Syliras in 15 days on a fast horse galloping and changing mounts or 30-45 days walking/caravan (2-3 times slower).

Travel Time Committee Volunteers Needed!

Postby Gossamer on December 10th, 2011, 5:07 pm

Right now I don't want 'distances' or 'travel times' even though Phoenix is overachieving again. What we really need is simply 'tables' like Phoneix did with Start City/Port, Destination City/Port, and Distance/ Travel time.

I think I like that format the best.

Start City/Port Destination City/Port Aprox Distance Travel Time
City 1 City/Port 2
City 1 City/Port 3


Code: Select all
[table]Start City/Port | Destination City/Port | Aprox Distance | Travel Time
City 1 | City/Port 2 | |
City 1 |  City/Port 3 | |[/table]


Do not worry about the Distances yet.. nor the travel times. My plan is to look at the distance chart, figure the distance with 'real overland flux' and then add in three fields for the Travel Time: Walking/Riding-Driving/Sailing

So I need:

1. People to Volunteer (you don't need a pc in the location)
2. Charts that all look alike made and added to the list
3. People willing to committee 'distance' and 'travel' because we'll fill out the charts region by region using eyeballing and logic.

Way to step up! Mind modifying your charts just a tad to match the one I kinda settled on? They were inspired by yours. You just need to divide up Distance and Travel time into two separate columns.

Happy to do sea routes from Zeltiva, I'll put up a table soonish (tm). I first need to check every city in detail to see which have some kind of port, so I'd say a day or two if that is reasonable.

I have made some tables for Avanthal. If there are any problems with it, let me know and I can try to fix it (it would also be nice to know if I'm doing it right, so i can maybe make tables for other cities).

Avanthal Karjin
Avanthal Novallas
Avanthal Denval

Okay I did two versions for Zeltiva by sea, one as per the initial post, the first two places that you'd come across before anything else, very simple for Zeltiva.

Start Port Destination Port Aprox Distance Travel Time
Zeltiva Lisnar
Zeltiva Sunberth


Code: Select all
[table]Start Port | Destination Port | Aprox Distance | Travel Time
Zeltiva |  Lisnar |  |
Zeltiva |  Sunberth |  |[/table]


The other as seems the popular consensus of nearby ports, and ports in the region. Nearby being a bit broader by sea perhaps.

Start Port Destination Port Aprox Distance Travel Time
Zeltiva Lisnar
Zeltiva Sunberth
Zeltiva Sahova
Zeltiva Mura
Zeltiva Nyka
Zeltiva Syliras
Zeltiva Claridon
Zeltiva Ahnatep
Zeltiva Yahebah


*added Syliras as it will be a popular route, and is in the region, though it will obviously be a long journey.
*you may want Yahebah removing, might be too far but it covers anything past the Faleyk Gulf as a fixed point well.

Code: Select all
[table]Start Port | Destination Port | Aprox Distance | Travel Time
Zeltiva | Lisnar |  |
Zeltiva | Sunberth |  |
Zeltiva | Sahova |  |
Zeltiva | Mura |  |
Zeltiva | Nyka |  |
Zeltiva | Syliras |  |
Zeltiva | Claridon |  |
Zeltiva | Ahnatep |  |
Zeltiva | Yahebah |  |[/table]


When I know which you prefer and the range you want, I will be happy to do more and help out
