Well I just did my own speed, I can walk a mile in ~20 minutes, so yeah
Oh derp, I meant "the latter"
If your embassy is trying to instill awe in the lands it passes through, much like some kind of royal progress, that might be an appropriate speed. If it's more "fast and discreet" I'd say they could do a fair amount more than 24 miles a day. That's marching speed for infantry.
I'll just do 24 miles a day. Thanks for trying though. Look forward to my summary of the Anavutian Independence War though, editing it right now.
A peace delegation and a messenger are two very different things in terms of speed, don't you think?
For the former, I'd say 60 to 80 miles a day. Then again you have to factor rests for the rider and horse, unless he can get another mount en-route for the latter.
Question, how fast do messengers in the 18th century travel on horseback or carriage? Like for example a peace delegation?
