I have been advocating this approach for the last 3 weeks, its defiantly the way to go, if Larian won't include an options page to customise the game im pretty sure some modders could do it.
Its basicly giving the player the option of a GM thats more suited for his/her playstyle.
also would like to see the following options.
Only short rest from a safe area
Short rest has the chance to get interrupted.
Push distance is STR based as pr 5E ruleset
Jump distance is STR based as pr 5E ruleset
Sneaking characters can be detected by noice (not really viable to sneak in full plate mail)
I agree with the following :
* Fast travel ONLY from portal to portal.
* Only long rest (Main camp) acess from a portal or town [along other Long Rest limitations]
* Stealth checks should be rolled by SOUND when not in vision cone and, in 5e tabletop, DMs rarely encourage hiding in plain sight. For example, Wood Elves have a special perk to hide in bad climate and tall grass, because others CANNOT.
BUT note that clunky armors already give Disadvantage on Stealth, but currently only in the vision cone.
