I've never seen a flying hogfish. I saw one gliding once, but never flying, not actually flying.

OK, so I get that if you have terrain with both a river and a road then you can move onto it using either icon on a die. Also, I'm taking it as red that you can also use the 'base' terrain, so if a hex is a 'plains' hex with a river and a road then you can move onto it with river, road or plains icons. OK so far. However, my confusion comes with swamps - swamps appear to have rivers running through them, does that mean that you can move onto a swap hex using a river icon?
[Also, my eight year old daughter pointed out that the hills/forest, etc. hexes sometimes have 'plains' terrain around their edges and therefore you should be able to move into them using a 'plains' icon - grr, took a lot of explaining before she would accept that it was just artwork and she couldn't do it!]

Re:Movement into hexes with multiple terrain / swamps
According to the Faqs on Runebound's site, there is only ONE hex with double landscape. This is the hex NW of Tamalir: Road and river and you can use either dice to go in.
The rest of the Hexes are ONE land. When you see a road, its a road, even if its a clear hex otherwise. When you see a river, its a river. When you see a marsh (4 of them only), its a marsh even if there is a river going through. As for plains, nothing is in it; its a clear hex. Hills, forests and mountains are easy and contains nothing else of importance.
Actually, keep everything simple as it looks.
Hope it helps; anyway, that's the way we have been playing and it works well. Happy gaming.
By the way, our group are finishing our 10th game and we have come up with simple House rules that really shine.
We have tried to make the game less of a running through cities with buying a couple of strong cards and going for blue encounters very early and winning easy. Sir Valadir playing first can do that with ease. Mordrog with a good weapon can kill Lord Margath in 2 shots. So we will introduce new concepts that will enhance our experience with the game without changing the essence and components of the game...
We will post them very shortly.
