The Caravan Interview with Sigil's Vince Napoli
There's been a lot of speculation about modes of travel in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. We know that travel will play an important role in the game, and that instant travel will be extremely limited. We also know that Vanguard will have a unique caravan system. There's been a good deal of speculation about how the system will work, so we cornered Sigil to get the official word on caravans. Game designer Vince Napoli answered our questions.
[VTTH]: We know that caravans will likely have a level restriction, meaning that the players banded together in a caravan will need to be within a certain level range of one another. What other restrictions will be placed on caravans to prevent exploits?
[VN]: We are testing out a few restrictions based on the feedback from our initial implementation in beta. A level limit is likely by release, as is some type of restriction on where your caravan may be "docked." We are also toying with "unlocking" areas before you may caravan to them.
