I know in the book it states the land area of Twylos is 4000 x 10000 miles. I am trying to find an easy way to determine travel time and distance. How many miles is 1 inch equal to (scale)?

Thanks

Roughly, one inch is about two hundred miles (at least when the map is scaled to fit on a piece of 28" x 22" posterboard). The whole of Twylos is approximately the same width across the long axis as Eurasia.

Rheyes to Tzalvas is about a thousand miles- we played it took about a month of travel on light-paced horseback or with a relatively unencumbered horse and wagon.

Hope this helps!

[Necro]I've done a few calculations and I'm finding that Twylos' main landmass is more likely to be of approximately 3500 miles by 6500 miles in size.

The world map's scale (as found on pages 94-95 of the revised book) would then be of about 600 miles per inch.[/Necro]
