@doolbneerg The new region is great. Some shiny new islands, which means new riddle spots to learn and whatnot. The volcanos are definitely arch-nemesis number one in the new region. We were sunk a couple times by them, and the Athena voyage we tried made really good time up until we had volcano trouble. Our last two islands blew up together at one point, with just about nowhere to run to wait it out and too much left to do in the meantime. It was a wild night.
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
