Of course being able to fast travel/teleport from nearly anywhere when you're outside is not a problem. I should even say that it is necessary.

But those runes are a problem.
It is the cheapest system they could have found.
"How are we going to allow players to teleport from 1 point to another ? Let's create teleport runes !". Like in MMORPG where everyone except any NPC living in the world has it's special stone to go everywhere.

Fast travelling (to camp or any other location) would feel way less immersion breaking if we just had to open the world map and click on the locations available.

Fast travelling would become fast TRAVELLING rather than a meaningless teleportation. It would increase the feeling we're traveling on the Sword Coast instead of creating inconsistencies.

Of course if the camp is not on the map, there's something else that really goes wrong.

This was talked about in another thread months back, portals is actually a forgotten realms feature at least in 4e it was. They are scattered all over Toril and come in different sizes / shapes. Portals last longer than the creator usually and were broken back when spell plague happened. That should be reverted by now though.

In the book portals linked from one destination to another crossing areas or planes. They are not all linked and you can't tele and just magically show up to one.

I'd like to see them actually used like a actual FR feature and people have to show up to use them like its not a cheap ass wow rip off that's incredibly immersion breaking.

The example they give in FRC 4e book is more closer to this, you can see the destination through the portal and you can gain additional info via arcane roll vs a DC:
