Wandering Mizahar

Postby Tani on September 11th, 2013, 4:27 am

Hello folks,

I'm planning to have Tani do some wandering between a site in the Cobalt Mountains and the Sea of Grass this season; however, I'm a little lost as to how long that sort of journey would take, webbing-related difficulties aside.

Is there anywhere I could find a list of travel times or distances to avoid creating too many holes in reality?

I think you might want to go to the Help desk for this if you want a mod opinion which is a good one to have for a really big question. XD

I am in a similar situation but I am doing it by a month RL time in each region to travel to the next one. Safest way I could think of because if someone doesn't stop in every town and cuts through they can get to places quiet quickly. Then again, there are skills for travailing. Land Navigation, Wilderness Survival, Observation. I believe these skills are much needed for anyone who's going to travel that far. You might look up prices for traveling; rent a coach to take your character there. Then skills won’t be counted on for speed or survivability away from the cities and their protection.

I would suggest you NOT take this to the help desk without going up the chain of command first. An ST of your local city first, if they don't have the answer the DS of your local city, if they don't have the answer then the RS of your local region, and then either take it to a founder or the help desk . . . but chances are by that point one of those storytellers who doesn't know the answer is going to go 'Hm. I'll get back to you' and go up the chain themselves, so the chance of you actually being sent to the help desk for something like this is pretty much nil.

Second of all, traveling around is a pain. I have seen it written that it takes a horse thirty days at a gallop to cross between Zeltiva and Syliras, and there is a clear paved road between the two! And that isn't taking in thoughts of food. Can you hunt for yourself? Can you cook your food? Can you fend off the ravenous beasts of the night long enough to stay safe? Alone usually the answer to 'I am going to travel' is 'you starve and/or are eaten by wild things' unless you have high wilderness survival, a source of food to sustain you and some offensive skill to keep the monsters off your back.

A straight answer to your question? Ask your local STs, they will know. But my knee-jerk response is 'be absolutely certain you understand the kind of dangers that prey on travels in Mizahar are before you go ahead with this.'

Thanks for the prompt replies. I'll certainly be sure to poke the powers that be beforehand to straighten things out. I wasn't planning to travel alone, so I'm not anticipating dying out in the Grasslands. Close calls, on the other hand, are an entirely different matter.

In any event, it's certainly something that merits a bit more thought.

An IRL month in between regions it's seriously moving way to fast. Some will take a full season. Some...like Kalea...you can't cross.

Which reminds me, if I may ask? How do you get to the trading outposts for Sultros so that you can then access the city? It's a journey I intend to make at some point.

Thanks.

The lore describe those trading posts as being in the "foothills" of the Kitrean mountains. To my understanding, it is the mountains that are impossible to cross (above ground anyway, unless you can fly). I imagine the foothills would be slightly more accessible. For a more certain and detailed answer, I would recommend either PMing Gillar, or asking your question in this Isur-specific questions thread.

Thank you :) I tend to avoid asking things of Gillar as answers are either immediate or months in coming - and this one was a general geography question as I've no issues about how to get into Sultros from the outposts.
