I have this problem. I just started a server and hero went on an adventure, which lasts one hour and 20 minutes to a one direction.
When I count both directions, the summary is ballpark 2 hours and 40 minutes.
In server start, it generates more adventures. New adventure spawns. I do not have horse yet. I get horse from the adventure. I cant abort mission from the rally point, because it has been 90 seconds or more.
So I suggest a new hero item: A dove which sends the mercy letter. The dove is supernatural; It fell same pot than Obelix. However, the consequence is different: it´s trained to be so fast,
that It can easily travel from an other of the map to other. The dove carries a letter. It tells the news from emperor: you have been released from your duty by a high order.
Hero, being selfless, falls into the sword. The new hero deploys immediately.
The hero dove is a rare item: It spawns only once in game beginning and it can´t be sold.
Thank you, and good bye.
