|Our Malta Map|
I have the above printed out for our use. The grid will allow us to communicate easier without having to remember every odd name. As you learn of places or go there, you can add it to your map and we can update it here.
Modern Malta covers 122 Square miles, our ancient version is larger and further spread out.
We are going to say 200 square miles.
What does that mean for us. It means that in the map grid above each lettered square across is roughly 16.5 miles across left to right. It means that each square down is roughly 28.5 miles. Example, square 1A is 16.5 miles across by 28.5 miles down.
With that knowledge we can apply the following:
Average walk speed is 3mph
Average Sailing speed is 7 knots which is roughly 6mph. Larger ships can get to greater speeds we are just dealing with averages
Average Flying Speed is 6mph. This is based on the idea that most PC's move 30 and move 60 if the fly spell is cast on them.
The goal behind this is to give us a quick go to when we need to be able to calculate or realize travel time.
