    Ah, love!
    Passage Pass would be shorter than, say, Gapping Gap? Liking the names on the map too.
    Thanks Giant!

    I really think these crazy kids are gonna make it. I really like how their romance has developed as the story went on, to where it's just a constant presence in the story. Like the air, or the constant sense of impending doom, or the ever hanging question of which bestiary the monster under the umbrella comes from?

    Nottinstory looks like such a lovely place. Any chance The Order is gonna get to visit it? :P

    Mildly disappointed to know that we won't learn about the history and going's-on in the famed dwarven village of "Nottinstory". Hopefully it turns out to be inaccurately named. :)

    Haley and Elan are one of the best webcomic couples I've seen. Gets better every time.

    Not sure.

    I suspect you have:
    Zenith Peak
    Tunnelsburg
    Thane City
    Firmament
    Northpole
    Bartervault
    Nottinstory
    Gelid Glacier

    The other two seem to be:
    Summit Mtns
    Molehill Mtns

    Edited to avoid a whole chain of correction on Mtns(see below)

    Oh, Haley, you're so romantic, in a Scrooge McDuck sort of way.

    If all the best paths have been charted - and we know that Hel and Greg have plans to back up their plans - I am anticipating ambush right ... about ... now. Mechane gets seriously damaged, crew gets killed, Andi leads mutiny, OotS gets stranded short of the dwarven lands.

    Also, "Notinstory". *snerk*. I believe we're heading for Firmament? Not Thane City?

    The other two seem to be:
    Summitmini(very unsure).
    Molehillmini(happy with Molehill - dubious about mini).
    I would be happy enough that the 'mini' is the same on both but not sure that it actually is 'mini'
    Mtns, not mini. The Summit Mountains and the Molehill Mountains.

    EDIT: Dwarven industriousness has succeeded in making mountains out of molehills.

    It's almost certainly Mtns, or Mountains.

    Ah that would make more sense - I initially had Molehill Men but it looked like I was misssing a letter and than with different zooms the I started to start having the letters all look like 'i's.

    I believe what you're seeing is "Molehill Mtns." and "Summit Mtns."

    I like that the Mechane has a maximum altitude, though I think it would have been better to point out that above 10,000 feet, the crew would begin suffering from severe hypoxia.

    Depends on how long you're up there - I'm taking the wife & daughter up to the top of Mt. Evans tomorrow, and don't expect anyone will pass out. Hydration is important.

    Don't know if that was the case magic could likely solve it easilly enough - water breathing and a flask of water would likely solve the issue and thereby allow faster travel (and unexpected piracy opportunities).

    First off, there are a lot of ways they could go faster. You would think they could have figured some of them out.
