With the amount of skyship activity implied by the populations in, and above, the skies of Mystara, has anyone worked out common air/space routes? My curiosity all comes from how likely is it that a given adventuring party on the ground in various areas of the known world is likely to see a UFO or an Identified Flying object (if low enough to the ground to be identified). Even and out of the way place like Threshold has Cordeilia' Carpet Service. Would there be a regular skyship run from Glantri to Specularum (a monthly diplomatic courier perhaps?) Would farmers in fields in the western farms of Thyatis see ships traveling up from Thyatis City into the the void beyond (to the Hollow Moon or elsewhere). Here on earth, if you like in a urban area near any size airport, you will see air traffic. If you live in a very rural area, the chances of seeing a plane overhead are much less. This also depends heavily on air traffic patterns and the altitude the planes fly at. If you are lucky (or know where and when to look) you can see the ISS pass by in orbit as a bright moving point of light. What level of activity do people on the ground see of skyship (or other flyer) activity?

Did Threshold Magazine do anything with that ties into that Mystara/Spelljammer adventure featuring the giff NPC? I'd love to see a Fan Enhancement for that, so if you have done anything with that, I'll read that article first.

That's a good question. Off the top of my head, I'd think perhaps they are getting them in trade with the Vilaverdan colony of Terra Leaoca. Either directly with the colonial ruler (don't recall his title), or perhaps through illicit trade with less than savory folk there (perhaps with a nod and wink from the colonial governor). IIRC, there is a prison there, so maybe there are also pirates and smugglers who the Neshezu trade with. Certainly their piratical leanings- clothing and weaponry- lead to some kind of connection with pirates.
They have starwheel pistols in Spellammer.
Are there many places that have wheellock pistols in Mystara?
There is a Spelljammer/Mystara adventure in one of the D&D starter sets, that features a giff chasing a neogi, but I thought that was set somewhere in Karameikos, otherwise I'd suggest that maybe guns were coming in from whatever Mystara location that adventure was located in.
