Thread: Travel

    Travel

    Personally, I am very anti-fast travel. Teleporting, runestones, portals... All that stuff. I get disappointed when I see those things, with exception to a /recall feature that allows you to get back to the last point you used /bind at.

    All of the fast travel features that seem to be in games these days create arena-style gameplay, which defeats the purpose of having a large, seamless map. Why create such a huge playspace if you're going allow people to skip over most of it to "hotspots"?

    It waters down tactics and strategy for raiding towns, enables large tribes to dominate the map without actually conquering it (they conquer small spaces, not lands), makes the world seem smaller, causes exploring to be an afterthought, and risk v. reward is fluffied in general.

    What type of travel is in Xsyon? I've looked, but didn't see anything on the subject. Maybe I missed a thread or feature.

    Roads will make you go faster, so will mounts, boats etc.

    Im not sure there is even a /recall option.

    There will not be any unnatural mode of transportation, that is, as you stated, teleports, instances, insta-travel.

    All traveling for now will be done by foot, mounts (I don't know if they will be in from start), and eventually boats etc etc.

    might not be smart to go out there all on your own

    I can't wait to ride my bear mount and terrorize the noobies.
