Fairly minor and innocuous suggestion, but it would do some for flavor. Some time ago, people were asking for I think the Lasallian Lyre to be offered as bagpipes, and it was offered, on auction. I believe @Kyrra
won it? I am not totally sure on that.
There are many items in mythology that can be equated with the Ring of Flying or the various Wings. Icarus's shoes from Greek mythology, the flying carpet from Middle Eastern stories and the flying broom. The function doesn't have to be different, but it would be pretty cool to see a person flying with glowing winged shoes or sitting on a broom. The function would be the same as Ring of Flying. Alternatively, the item might be offered as a two-in-one of Ring of Flying and Eagle Wings.
An innovation on the whole scheme could be a room of teleportation within someone's home, sold as a Housing upgrade for room credits like no-prism rooms. Add the housing upgrade to a room, say a magic word (different from Duanathar,) and you're taken to Clouds. I don't imagine it'll ever become ultra popular, because wings can be used anywhere outside, while this can only be used in one room in one place. The one boon is it's an indoor thing. But, it would be an interesting upgrade, if implemented.
Thank you for reading my idea.
A. Either a smaller set of possible destinations that you bypass the clouds altogether with (speak the command word and get transported directly there) or
B. A single destination that you can select and redesignate 1/Achaean month, sort of like a reverse Hermit or Raido. Cannot be in any city/temple you are enemied to, villages are ok. Must be physically in the room you wish to recalibrate the teleport to.
a book that you write your destination into and then it sucks you inside into a temporary paper world of semi-fictional quasi-reality and closes upon itself

a giant burrowing star-nosed mole rat with a contractually bound imp rider who comes to "collect" you whenever you stamp your feet three times, by yanking you down into the earth and taking you down to an underground cavern (where he farms fungi to make mushroom wine), and then digs a burrow for you to your destination
an invisible lighthouse on the threshold of the realms of living and dead that sweeps an invisible beam of light across the continent, beckoning lost souls, and that's why ghosts mainly only haunt houses or graveyards or dark underground places (because they're blocked from the light), and you're charged with its stewardship, and any time you ring the bell the beam of light fixes upon you and beams you up to the lighthouse, so you can say hi to the spectral residents and then beam down to your destination
like, a stick of chalk that you can use to draw a door to an in-between place (what am I ripping off with this? Night Watch? Neverwhere? Pan's Labyrinth?), which contains permanently painted doorways to a few fixed locations

a set of prismatic bagpipes
Splayed tenors radiate out from the set of bagpipes left here.
You blow on a set of prismatic bagpipes, and a prismatic barrier forms around you.
I don't remember the exact message that everyone else sees, but it's something along the lines of an obnoxious piercing noise offending eardrums before the prismatic barrier goes up. The first time I used them on the battlements after I won the auction, Dunn literally threw me out of the city. They're awesome. It's a different mechanic for them to work (blow instead of strum) and I had to get Vadi to help me configure Svo so I could use them in place of the lyre commands.
