    I think thats the name of it. The lake up near yew with the island in the middle.

    I wanna see if theres a house on that damn island! And if not, I wanna put one there!

    It was blocked from boats like...seriously 10 years ago back when people lived in it on boats because there was no more room for homes.

    Do it dev team!

    I always thought it was because they were eventually gonna put in sea horses to get to the hidden areas.

    To see what what he could see.

    And all that he could see,

    Was another wave...

    Indeed. There were suppose to be a lot of things they were suppose to add. But something tells me we aren't getting any sea horses at this point :-(

    That's not true. The current dev team also plays the game. Now I don't think they necessarily play the game for the same reasons, and probably haven't put the same amount of time in game that some of the past developers have, but they do play the game.

    Theres a lot of odd things like not being able to put boats in rainbow lake around. Things that were changed or shut off for some now arcane reason. The peeps who made the changes left almost a decade ago.

    Rainbow Lake and Ilshenar don't allow boats because of the "Z-axis bug", which most likely still exists today (I know it was still around in 2006 at least, because it caused issues with parts of the Inu the Crone event arc).

    Perhaps they should add areas to other landmasses that Gargoyles can FLY over. Not just Ter Mur.

    You know the Devs take break down in the basement on their own preserved classic client stand alone server. Giggle like little school girls at the humor of it all. And have boats with wheels pulled by bulls for crossing land locked areas.

    Boats in rainbow lake... sounds like a trippy sequel to a summer adventure flick. I'm on board. Long as I'm given a comfy seat.
