    The idea that you can fly across the landscape and all obstacles as a Gargoyle is fantastic! I very much like that!

    Players, you can view the highway stations here:

    "Gargoyle Highway" doesn't feel right as a name.. i'd prefer Grand Skyway, or "Vas Ter-hur Via" (Great Sky Road).

    seems that you know well this map... so I ask one thing: in the west part of the map there is a big part of land not accessible, have you found how to going there?

    here is a pic (from your map) to locate the area:

    they should put a toll road up as a gold sink.

    would really anger the gargoyles i'm sure too.

    Hey I resemble that remark! Good bit moron, at least on a good day.

    I honestly think, even before my fourth cup of coffee I would have noticed a linky. Hawkeye is real good about putting them up, and his maps are stories are very good. But, at least for this time, guilty as charged. Thanks for pointing it out!

    Hawk, what is the difference between the flyway and a passage?

    The Highway is a route that connects the 8 stations with each other. If you fly on this, you can pass great distance in short time and fly over any obstacle (water, mountain, void) that lies on that route.

    The passages are places only accessible to Gargoyles.

    Essentially they act like really high invisible bridges (if you go off the edge, you fall to the ground below).

    They're very cool, but I kept expecting them to lead to some hidden island tower not reachable any other way.
