    Mount&Blade as a Multiplayer game- Ideas on implementation

    Roads! For speed!

    Hey, I love this game. One of the few problems I have with it is how long some of the merchant related missions take. Getting from one city to the other back and then to another and so on and so on. Anyway, I thought a cool way to make that less tedious, would be to make roads that connect...
