I need a rough rule-of-thumb for how much time it takes to travel long distances in Mythic Europe. I have a player who wishes to do a lot of travelling - which is fine. We have no desire to play out the minutiae of journeys however, what I need is a general way of making quick estimates of travel time in ordinary circumstances.
On foot or on horseback, I assume that fifteen miles per day is reasonable (it takes into account both excellent and terrible conditions en route); but what about by ship? My inclination is to say that, once again, fifteen miles per day is about right. This would take into account that one has to find a ship going the right way, book passage, wait for favourable conditions, stop off at ports on the way to re-fit and re-stock, wait again for favourable conditions, etc.. Perhaps, however, I've got that completely wrong.
As I say, I only need the most general and easily applicable guide so that I can work out, for instance, how long to go from Toulouse to Copenhagen (a month? two?).
Any help will be much appreciated.
