Log from Teppy explaining the airship cicada fiasco
(Eulen was not online when this chat was opened.) Found Cicada that can not be accessed by walking. Airship which requires level 21 should not be neccesary for a level 8 test
Teppy: Many people have commented on this...
Teppy: First off, it's impossible for the server to know which areas are accessible by who. ATITD has so many combinations of travel - spouse
warp, chariots, airships, and (soon) swimming. I've probably forgotten a half dozen.
Teppy: So I'm not sure what the right solution here is. Certainly there are a bunch of cages in non-airship areas.
Teppy: Though it's annoying to find one that you can't reach.
Teppy: Ah, I see a way for even a level-1 player to reach such cages, though it requires some connections...
Teppy: Learn Airship construction from someone else...
Teppy: No level requirement for learning from another player.
Teppy: Then have someone loan you an airship, or build/trade for one.
Teppy has left the channel.

So there is the final word from Teppy and possibly a hint of how close we are to getting swimming (maybe). You have to of course take into account that 'soon' doesn't always mean soon in a timeline you were expecting.

Curious Findings

11-29-09 - (Nissim) Found a stellae in Saqquarah 147,-1971 that reads:
Know then that I, Se-Osiris have set this tablet here as the final piece of the riddle of Isis. It is by the Goddess' will that this tablet is here, and by the Goddess' will alone that it will be revealed. Yet, as I approach the final chapter of my life, I start to feel a nagging resentment. I am Se-Osiris, my death shall be of MY choosing! I shall not be a piece moved in a game any longer! I shall write this tablet, then I shall make my exit of this world. The land around shall shake and tremble, molten rock shall flow upon the surrounding lands like water, and the should shall traverse the world! Osiris himself will tremble with his kingdom, and the World of the Dead shall know that Se-Osiris is on his path!

I, Se-Osiris, shall be a pawn no longer!
