*Ernst patches up Chandra and Gerald before shaking his head.* "Looks like a fun time."

Garrett: "Time to put these cannons to work, yeah?"

Aleith|DM: *As you begin patching them up, the ships at the fore begin shelling the bunkers with their forward turrets.*

Aleith|DM: *The gnolls remaining in the bunkers start returning fire.*

Aleith|DM: *It's going to be very messy.*

Gerald: "Looks like they got it under control…"

*Gerald‘ teleports back to their new airship, out of the direct line of fire.* "

Phyllis: "How’s our getaway coming along?"

Pemberton: "Still need to finish things up. 25 minutes, give or take a few. The rest can be done in the air."

Chandrasekhar: "Hm."

Ernst: "I'd offer to speed that up, but I think they might need me out here."

Chandrasekhar: "The question is, where can we be of use, yes."

Phyllis: "As a boarding party, perhaps?"

Phyllis: "Or we pilot the … those aerial contraptions."

Pemberton: "Any thoughts about heading out in the dragon fliers? Otherwise I'll get some gnolls to harry the fleet and have them meet up with the ship when we take off."

*Gerald‘ looks at Ernst, nodding at Pemberton’s words.*

Phyllis: "Yes, those." *Her expression sours at the name.*

*Garrett‘ chuckles.*

Ernst: "I shouldn’t have any issue using them at least. Can you guys adapt quickly?"

Garrett: "This is going to be incredible or a huge disaster. Or an incredibly huge disaster."

Ernst: "I mean worst case scenario I already fly on my own."

Gerald: "You fly I shoot."

Chandrasekhar: "Let's give the dockers something to sing about, shall we?"

Phyllis: "That covers you two, but the other four of us?"

Gerald: "Uhhh…"

Aleith|DM: *Zane and Garret can take one or two as well, with other people or gnolls or Risuri soldiers helping*

Gerald: "You fly, Zane shoots, since worst comes to worst you can just command the thing to wrk how you want it to…"

Gerald: "Then leave Chandra and Garrett here to defend the boat."

Pemberton: "Alright, I'll get my best two gnolls in the third flier, then."

Garrett: "Try not to crash into the ocean! At least crash into their ships!"

Phyllis: "Thanks, Garrett."

Chandrasekhar: "I'll be watching." *He's grinning and you can hear it.*

*Phyllis eyes one of the fliers with some trepidation, but … Gerald's right. She can probably swing this.*

*Garrett‘ wheels about and starts heading down towards the docks, barking out a sailor’s shanty after a number of paces, pausing every now and then to bark a boisterous order.*

Aleith|DM: *As the dragon fliers take off, the rest of the Danoran fleet starts heading towards the sea gate.*

Aleith|DM: *There's over a dozen battleships, a few dozen frigates, and at least 50 more smaller steamships.*

Aleith|DM: *The flagship, La Lux du Raison, stands out for its central turret, which seems to have a giant Wayfarer's Lantern built into it.*

Aleith|DM: *You make strafing runs over several of the ship. The cannons DO have the ability to track upwards, and some of them fire at you, but all of them miss widely.*

Phyllis: "What plane could they possibly be channeling from the lantern?"

Aleith|DM: *Some of the soldiers' firearms do manage to hit the fliers, though only making small holes, dents, or glancing off the mithral 'scale' decorations.*

Phyllis: *Except probably louder and shouting over the propellors.*

Aleith|DM: *As you get closer to the deadline for the repairs, the bombardment of the eastern sea wall has mostly finished in the Danoran's favour, despite your efforts to pin them down. Five ships pull up beside the wall, while others form lines behind them, connected with bridges. Which you make them pay dearly for, while escort ships on the flanks attempt to shoot you down.*

*Gerald‘ has a couple rockets ready for that giant Wayfarer’s Lantern. >:E*

[OOC] Phyllis: Make It So.

Aleith|DM: *The casing cracks slightly, but it seems to have been heavily reinforced. [1 Strike]*

*Phyllis could probably try to get close enough for a [Spatial Lock], but … that seems risky.*

Aleith|DM: *Sovereign Jierre shouts back,* "you're relics of the past age. You belong in a museum!" *He makes a gesture like he's cracking a whip, and the whole army around him returns fire on your flier, Gerald. [Thundercrack]*

Aleith|DM: *Dealing 97 damage to the dragon flier.*

Gerald: "Hahah."

Gerald: "HEY."

*Garrett‘ heads for the eastern sea wall, rallying the troops.* "WE’LL SHOVE THE ARMY TO THE DEPTHS AND WATCH THE WATERS RISE WITH THEIR BLOOD! BLAST FORTH!"

Gerald: "I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW…"

Aleith|DM: *Meanwhile, the lantern cannon releases a blinding flash of light as it approaches the sea gate. It strikes the gate and vaporizes a twenty-foot wide span. The beam travels far enough to also singe parts of the docks on the other end of the sea wall harbour.*

Gerald: "THAT YOUR KIDS DIED LIKE LITTLE BITCHES, JIERRE!"

*Gerald‘ continues firing his rockets into the lantern, then switched to the plane’s gattling guns once those are gone.*

Aleith|DM: *You're blinded (save ends)*

Aleith|DM: *Everyone is, really.*

Aleith|DM: *You hear cheers from many of the soldiers after the blast.*

Aleith|DM: *Once you get your vision back, you can see that the air above the navy is beginning to roil.*

Aleith|DM: *Roil with psychic energies.*

Phyllis: "GESTALT!"

Aleith|DM: *You make some more strafing runs on the flagship, doing not a small amount of damage while the lantern cannon begins to recharge.*

Aleith|DM: *On the wall, soldiers begin to flood it, while scouting teams head into the fortress. Chandrasekhar and Garret fend off one of them.*

Aleith|DM: *Shortly after this, Pemberton shouts that their ready, and has the gnolls evacuate inland after they get as many as they can on the Coaltongue.*

Aleith|DM: *Han Jierre, too, has noticed the nascent hivemind.*

Aleith|DM: *The lantern cannon rotates upwards instead of towards the fortress.*

Chandrasekhar: "How inauspicious. Or… perhaps not."

*Phyllis decides to get back to the Coaltongue. Being anywhere near that seems like a bad proposition.*

Aleith|DM: *As the incoporeal mass seems ready to burst into proper reality, La Lux du Raison fires a single shot from the Lantern into the air, dissipating it in seconds.*

Aleith|DM: *As the last shot was two minutes ago, Pemberton takes the opportunity to get the Coaltongue in the air and make a run for it.*

Aleith|DM: *As the airship ascends into the sky, Pemberton moves to the back of the ship staring out at the assembled Danoran fleet. The destruction below causes smoke plumes to rise, and the shouting and yells become an inaudible sound as the ship continues to rise.*

Aleith|DM: *However, after you ascend a couple hundreed feet into the air, several Danoran escort craft fire specialty bolts up at the airship, looking something like overly-large harpoons attached to chains.*

Aleith|DM: *You have a feeling these were prepared for Pemberton's dragon form, not the first airship of the age, but they're making do.*

*Phyllis takes her dragon flier around to fire at the chain links.*

Aleith|DM: *Three of the harpoons manage to impact the hull, ripping into the ship and chaining it in place. The chains slowly begin to retract. It's slow (5 feet per round), but steady.*

Aleith|DM: *Benedict Pemberton turns away from his scrutinizing of the Danoran fleet, his arms lowered and his thumbs locked through his belt.*

Pemberton: "Well now, this is one hum dinger we have here. By the looks of things, our friends down there came with toys to use against me. I so hate to disappoint them, and more, I'd hate to lose this fine ship I spent so much time on. I do believe it's time to join the rodeo."

Aleith|DM: *Turning his back to the party, he strips off his gentleman's coat and his pants, then hands them to Pardo to fold.* "I'll leave it to you fine folk to get this new-fangled ship unstuck. I'll deal with these ruffians below."

Aleith|DM: *With that, Pemberton leaps from the side of the ship, assuming his steely draconic form while falling.*

Ernst: "Well then."

Gerald: "Seeing as how you're the only one that can hear me Ernst… I will say, that was Kind Of Cool."

Aleith|DM: *You hear loud thuds as well as shouts from men down below.*
