Teleport and 40' Edit

Does this mean that one can at most travel around 30 kilometers via teleport at a time? (Due to the planet's curved nature.) That's certainly handy to stop wizards from teleporting halfway across the world--though I suppose they could do it in multiple jumps. That said, this might not apply on Discworld. --Ghostwheel 09:26, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

Assuming a curvature roughly equal to the earth's, possibly. It really depends on what "a straight line" means when looked at on a large scale. Do you treat it as a Cartesian straight line that happens to be on an object or do you use a curved geometry like the surface of a sphere where straight lines only appear so due to current dimensionality (since it happens instantaneously, we ignore planetary movement in both cases, which is good since that's silly to try to include). You can argue it either way really, depending on what type of game you want to come out of it. - TarkisFlux 16:34, September 18, 2010 (UTC)
