Travel rules (used until episode 21) Edit

Traveling along roads is generally safer, and you'll be more likely to run into other travelers as well.

Tracks or trails tend to follow major features of the land, or use landmarks as guideposts. They're safer than the wilds, but not by much.

Traveling through the wilderness is often secluded, but can also be dangerous. You can also discover dramatic and exotic features of the wilderness by heading off the beaten path.

Speed of Travel Edit

A character's speed describes movement in short-duration, life threatening situations. Here's how far characters can move over an extended period of time.

A standard travel day is 8 hours. Characters may engage in a Forced March to travel for longer, but at the end of each hour they must make a Constitution saving throw against exhaustion.

On Foot:
Pace Miles per Hour Miles per Watch Miles per Day
Fast 4 16 32
Normal 3 12 24
Slow 2 8 16
Cart with Mules:
Pace Miles per Hour Miles per Watch Miles per Day
Fast 5 20 40
Normal 4 16 32
Slow 3 12 24
Pace Miles per Hour Miles per Watch Miles per Day
Fast 10 40 80
Normal 8 32 64
Slow 6 24 48

Horses can only travel at a Fast pace on a road or trail.  They can only sustain a Fast pace for a single watch before suffering a level of exhaustion. If they move at a Fast pace for a day, they must make a Constitution saving throw or die.

Navigation Edit

Characters are capable of finding their way in the wilderness through features like the positioning of the sun, direction of the wind, flight patterns of birds, and other natural phenomena. They may also use local landmarks to guide themselves.

If the characters are traveling off of a road, track, or trail and they lack clear directions for where they're going, they must make a Survival check each watch to see if they head in the right direction. The odds can be modified in a few ways:

Moving at a Slow pace Navigation DC reduced by 2
Clear, step-by-step directions Double proficiency bonus
Map of the region Advantage on Survival checks
Inclement Weather Disadvantage on Survival checks
Night Travel Halved proficiency bonus

Searching for a Location Edit

When characters have traveled to the approximate location of their destination but haven't found it yet, they must make a Perception check to locate it. This search takes 1 hour, and represents finding vantage points, scouting, looking for fine details mentioned, and other similar tactics.

Searching the Wilderness Edit

The West Marches are a wild place, filled with danger and adventure. The wilderness hides its treasures well, but they are densely packed for those who know how to look.

Characters who choose to search the wilderness can stop making progress in order to explore nearby landmarks, tracks, trails, and other interesting features. For every watch spent this way, the players make an additional roll on the Discovery Chart to find what's hidden in the wilderness.

How far can I see? Edit

Distance to the horizon is governed by your height, as follows.

Altitude Distance
6 feet (man height) 3 miles
40 feet (tree height) 7 miles
100 feet (plains hill) 12 miles
500 feet (hill) 27 miles
1,000 feet (mountain) 38 miles
* Mountains can be seen from 70 miles away
