Overland Travel

When travelling overland each party member may make two actions per watch.

The party's default movement is 0kms per watch but may be increased using the Pacemaking action.

A character who is mounted may increase the party's movement by a variable speed for free once per watch, based on the size of the party, as detailed below.

If a character performs more than 6 actions between long rests they must make constitution checks for each watch the perform any actions in. The DC for this check is double the number of actions they have taken since their last long rest. On a failure they gain one rank of exhaustion.
