Scanning through the Kickstarter page for this game, I noticed that it mentioned fast travel will be possible to various locations. I wanted to ask if this is a definite feature or not, as I think it's a bad idea.
There are a few reasons that I think this. First off, without the ability to poof around all over the map, countries and guilds will have to have fairly localized territory, which in the PvE areas makes more logical sense and in the PvP zones adds much to the realism and strategy to conflict.
Secondly, it would promote inter-region trade. If you can't get every resource within your own territory you have to trade with foreign plays/guilds/countries in order to meet all of your needs, and this is perfect for a game that wants to have a player-driven economy.
Third, if there's fast travel then roads, vehicles and traveling merchants have no purpose and/or are non-existant. When you limit transportation, you open up all sorts of new careers and jobs that players can take part in.
I'd like to note, in conclusion, that I'm not saying that having faster transportation doesn't make sense as we move into more advanced scientific eras (which I recall reading would occur as the world's capital wealth accumulates), but if we're basically starting in the stone age then having magical teleportation doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
