It is for my CD, how long would this journey take (timewise)

And, for that matter, is that route feasible?  I'm not sure how advanced and seaworthy Zhunite ships are, but for relatively primitive ships, a safer (but much longer) route would probably be to hug the coast, then island-hop to Santharia, then hug the coast again until you reach Strata.

I don't really mind the exact route...I just wanted know how long it would take to get from Cusca to Strata (the route being safely balanced but not too long)

So with mina's proposed course, one would take the boat up along from nybelmar, taking to the coast, and bounce from one isle to the next, up though the crimson isles and down the coast to strata correct?

I'm just confirming what mina said in a manner that may or may not make more sense to people. And who says everyone already knew that?  :D

I didn't say everyone, I just said that Decipher, Mina, you and me knew it already. And I think that Mina said it pretty clearly for everyone to understand properly.

Anyway, there is no need to argue about it!

That depends on the trade winds. A strong east to west wind in southern Caelereth could be the reason why Yamalquain has not been discovered. If that is the case then it would be easier to head around the west side and go north of Nybelmar.

Yamalquain has been discovered, I think.  It's just not available for development yet, so we don't have any information about it on the site.  The fact that it's shown in maps should indicate that it's known.

If Yamalquain hasn't been discovered then why is it on the map :)?

Anyway...Thanks to some reference material and values that Talia gave me I came up with this:


118 pixels= 5265 strals

1 Pixel = 44.61864406779661 strals

155 pixels = 6692.796610169491 strals

6692.796610169491 strals = 4158 Miles

1 mile in unfavourable conditions = approx 1/5 of a day

1/5 of 4158 = 832 (approx)

Cusca-Varcopas= 832 days = 2 years and 102 days

Simple..if you look at it in a certain way...all based on ratio (which I hope is right since I have an exam on it tommorow in my Math's class grin)

Not sure about that number, it sounds like common land travel distance (~5-7 miles a day in the wilderness) and the average speed does not necessarily equal unfavourable condition.

By ship the distance Rome<-> Carthage took only about 3-5 days and is about 300 km/strals at least (made only a rough measurement on a map). 'I think that's higher than 1/5 but maybe I'm misunderstanding some basic. ;)

For sailing I'd say you could easily take 3/4 knots on the average (although it won't necessarily be in a straight line). 1 knot is 1.852 km/h, so that's around 6.5 km/h. Ships generally sail 24/7 when not in a harbour, so doing about 150 km a day shouldn't be much of a problem. With good weather that would be even more.

In the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Book two, Chapter IV Frodo and Sam marched through cragy terrain from Black Gates for 25 miles and that march took them one night.

Ships surely go faster then a couple of hobbits.

A possible reference for you:

Columbus made his first journey from the Canary Isles to his first shore in five weeks. The distance estimated by him was 750 leagues, which is fairly accurate. A league is considered to be 2.67 nautical miles, where a nautical mile equals 1.852 kilometers. This results in Columbus traveling 3708.63 kilometers in 35 days, which equals roughly 106 kilometers a day. We have to take into account he used the southern Trade winds, giving him an advantage and that he used all the tools the Age of Discoveries had given him. How far this situation is comparable to your own is up to you.

(sources:
http://www.apol.net/dightonrock/CodFish/discovery_of_north_america.htm
http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/columbus.htm
http://www.metric-conversions.org/length/nautical-miles-to-kilometers.htm

The Dungeons & Dragons 3.0 Dungeon Master Guide gives ship travel distances from 2 to 4 miles an hour, resulting in 48 to 96 miles a day, depending on the type of ship you use. Assuming the publisher is American and they use their system of measures, the number is multiplied by 1.609, resulting in roughly 77 to 154 kilometers a day.

I'm sure you can find something similar on the web, but so far I've had trouble locating a decent source. Good luck for now!
