My experience is such, having to travel huge distances to conquer my next villa, or my first in this case. But there is no achievement to reward those kinds of long and dangerous journeys, it's dangerous because the paladin cannot be two places at once and defensive paladins have a remarkable effect on how your its preform, and when conquest of the villa you are targeting is 12 and 20 hours away, it make for a stressful vulnerability. aswell patience is not always the best reward. In my case patience has no reward so I'd like some kind of consellation. For the effort of having to preform such asks so early in the game.
