Has anyone noticed yet, that for a civilization still utilizing Horses or sail ships for the main mode of transportation, and the conveyance of information by word of mouth or hand delivered letters, information still seems to spread across the continent like wild fire.
Any event that happens in one corner of the continent always seems to reach the ears of another Race in another corner. Seemingly "new" fads like the Tales of Tribute game suddenly pops up in every Tavern and Inn across the continent at the same time. For societies that should logically be very isolated from one another, with the sharing of information being a supposedly lengthy and difficult job, everyone somehow finds out about everything fairly quickly.
And we can't just chalk it up to people using portals.
