Vesubian Route Corunglain to Glantri

by Robin

Players Help

This is a typical merchant map that players may buy in Corunglain or Trintan for only 100 gold pieces. 
It is the most complete map merchants have access to. 
The hefty 100 gold price is normal for maps made in dangerous areas.
All details are as seen from the Trail, (often with farseer glasses), or by brave scouts who ventured somewhat from the path.
Other details not described as clearly are assumed by logic or divination.
The map will be copied by scribes on paper and delivered in a leather tube for carriage  (waterproofed tubes cost an additional 15 gold)
It is roughly 1 foot by 2.5 feet long
including tube it weighs 15 cn (tube 10cn).

Some typical merchant info is added.
A steep climb (or descent the other way around) decreases the speed in this region by 5% for each 5% or part thereof higher than 25%.
Other delays may be in raids,
Caravans travel mostly in wagons at speeds of 60'/20'or 90'/30' and rarely (or not) use forced march )adding 50% to the total traveling time of 8-10 hours, but exhausting most animals , riders and drivers that they need 50% extra resting time (averagely 6-8 hours depending on individual).
Remember a Turn = 10 minutes, 1 minutes = 6 rounds on D&D Mystara.

On the Trail a common wagon with an average speed of 60'/20' passes 1 mile Broken Land hex. Hill hex in 2 Turns and 1 minute for a total of 18 miles a day in this territory, beyond the Trail this would be 6 Turns (1 hour) for a total of 8 miles a day. 
On the Trail a common wagon with an average speed of 90'/30' passes 1 mile Broken Land hex. Hill hex in 1 Turn and 8 minutes, beyond the Trail this would be 4 Turns 
On the Trail a common wagon with an average speed of 60'/20' passes 1 mile Mountain hex in 1 hour, beyond the Trail  this would be 3 hours and 4 Turns.
On the Trail a common wagon with an average speed of 90'/30' passes 1 mile Mountain  hex in 4 Turns, beyond the Trail  this would be 5 Turns and 4 minutes.
For easy use any delays as given above only for those 1 mile hex in which the delay is effective.
