I think we should decide on a scale for the map. Right now it's difficult to imagine just how big everything is. Adding a scale would also make movement fairer/more regulated.
Deciding on a maximum movement speed for armies relative to the distance would also be good, for example, an army can only move 80 kilometers a day. At sea, the speed would be greater.
Thoughts?

I would also like to make a scale for a day. How many real days are in a realm day? etc.

My ideas:
One Realm Distance (decide on a name): Distance between Tok and Zagot at their closest.
Army travel: 3RD per Realm Day (at sea), .5 RD per day (by land)
1 Real Day = 1 Realm Week (7 Realm Days)

I think we established fairly early on that 1 week of real life was 1 month Realmtime, so was was going on 1 day = 4 Realm days.

I think that 1 day being a week may be difficult to manage, especially when people are trying to have lots of things happen quickly, and in fiddly war bits when people are constantly repositioning their forces (read: Sirdovian Great Realm War campaign XD). I think the current timescale works well enough (but of course that's just my opinion).

The top line is land move speed on land, and the bottom one is move speed by sea. This is per 24 real hours.
TBH, I think the naval speed per 24 hours is excessive, allowing you to plop your navy pretty much anywhere they're needed.

I suggest 1.5 RDs for land movement and maybe 5 or 6 RDs for ships, per 24 real hours (4 Realm days).
