the most recent game i started placed me VERY far away from any sort of action. i tried to remedy this by sending a caravan, but no love. even WITH organized this walk takes me several turns from my outermost settlement. then i still have several more turns to get through the territorry of my ally to get to the guy i want to kill. sure, i could build an outpost in useless territory, use a channeler to teleport troops there, and have my sovereign ferry troops from there to the front. but that just seems wrong. my sovereign is not a a beast of burden.
organized is an incredibly important trait which makes the others incredibly passbyable. getting around the wilderness with out it is just way too time consuming. caravans are terrible. the food bonus is worthless, they are constantly eaten by random critters, and they don't work at long distances (routes too complicated?). so how about just giving an option to build roads? (i would settle for the ability to teleport into allied territory)
