Yo! I've recently revived my high fantasy, and it's changed pretty drastically. I'm in the process of outlining, even though I swore I wouldn't work on it right now.. But I guess you just gotta follow where inspiration leads you! Anyway. I've stumbled across an issue. I have characters that need to travel between two distant cities, fairly quickly and regularly. My trouble is that I'm not quite sure the best way to do this. The cities have to be far apart for reasons I won't get into, so making them closer isn't an option. Animals to ride are pretty uncommon for another reason I won't get into, so that's another concern, and walking would take forever. But I feel that adding trains or air ships would take away from the typical, slightly medieval, vibe of high fantasy. I'm not opposed to doing it. I just don't want to go so far away from the norm that it throws people off. Also, I suppose traveling through the sea by ship is possible, just not ideal. So what do you think is the best option here? I know, it's my story and it's fantasy, I can literally do whatever I want. And I will. I'm just looking for opinions. What kind of long-distance travel have you seen in novels that works or doesn't work? Which option would you choose in my situation? Also, once I figure out the means of transportation, is it necessary to explain the entire trip? Or could I just say something as simple as, "It took us three days to reach our destination"? Any and all advice appreciated.
