Some number of heroes has to sit at a site for some number of days. It's a thing that can be completed, and then there may be further steps.

Completing an overland job generally requires having the heroes perform labor at the location. Labor is measured in hero-days: if a job would take 60 hero-days, then that's about how long it takes one hero to do it. Two heroes take about 30 days, three heroes take about 20 days, and so on.

Different heroes have different speed factors for performing different jobs. Hunters are better at Scouting, Mystics are better at Securing, Warriors are better at building Barricades. Individual hero's effectiveness can also vary according to their age, speed, charisma, abilities, and other factors. Some jobs get full benefit from everyone working on the job, like Securing sites, while other jobs have diminishing returns from numbers, like Scouting. When you assign a particular group to do a job, the game will predict how long that crew will take.

Scout

Scout the tile to reveal the terrain and any lurking threats. Primarily a job for hunters.

labor = 16 hero-days
speed_factor = { 0.8×(1 + speed/10) for hunters, (0.08×speed) for everybody else}

labor = 60 hero-days
speed_factor = 1
helper_contribution = 50%
