Serraine, what is the typical flight plan?

I was wondering if anyone could help me with plotting Serraine's flight plans.

Very good points. Perhaps Nagpas have a place on the Known World where they get onto Serraine? I'd imagine they also fly past some Mountain tops in the Brokenlands to pick up Faenare.Cthulhudrew wrote: ↑Sat Jul 06, 2019 3:41 amThe nagpa Abatu is noted to use a ring of teleportation to get aboard Serraine in Dragon 158, so there isn't necessarily any reason to believe that the Vulture Peninsula (or even Davania) are on any regular route for the city. Considering the amount of food I'd think they'd need to import (not to mention other supplies) I would suspect that the city does have a fairly regular route that it travels, where it has some kind of established trade. If they were to go over regions that were un- or sparsely-populated for any length of time, I imagine it would be problematic for them.
I like the idea of different types of Nagpa existing on Mystara. The Varellyans could be just one of several types.Sturm wrote: ↑Mon Jul 08, 2019 9:28 amIIRC it was not clear in canon where in the world Serraine originated. I think some fans speculated its origin could be in Davania, maybe due to the presence of nagpas. Yet nagpas were present also in the Black Mountains in X4 and X5 and I think their presence there was not really explained (if not by Bruce ex-post as I believe he said nagpas were cursed to wander the world).
Personally I prefer to use nagpas as related to gyerians and other bird-like creatures, and so have the cursed Varellyans as only a part of the nagpa population. IMC they were so cursed because they exterminated the original nagpa population of their region.
