The two ships were locked together in the air, shaking and spiralling down at an alarming rate of speed.
One of the things you should know about the magically powered flight is when two ships collide it is very similar to two water sailing ships. Many things could cause your death, fire, the enemy, falling ship rigging, however, instead of a chance of drowning should you be knocked overboard, you instead get an opportunity to plummet to your death. Remember it is not the fall but the amount of fall with an abrupt landing that kills you.
The party engaged in battle on the deck found that the ship made for very difficult terrain as it rocked back and fouth while tilting up and down like a carnival ride has gone mad. Circling around the two ship battle were three small Skiffs, they each held four attackers and one person controlling the Skiff from the rear seat via a rudder. As the Skiffs closed range the soldiers aboard would fire flaming arrows at the rigging, onto the deck or into the crew. WIth the level of flame and smoke increasing, Through all the havoc Tluth managed to see a figure the size and shape of Nameless leap on to one of the Skiffs, tossing the soldiers overboard and turned to begin racing away from the battle. Tluth yelled at his party for someone to stop the escaping quarry. Bane realizing how easy it was to commandeer a Skiff took it upon himself to leap to one of them as they passed him, knocking the soldiers off in the process and with a little fancy sword working sent the body of the pilot right behind them. The ground was quickly approaching the two intertwined large vessels and a wreak was inevitable. The rest of the party took this opportunity to join Bane on his newly acquired transport. They were in pursuit of their target once more when a wildly fired harpoon from one of the main ships hit the rudder of the parties Skiff and they began losing altitude and speed. The two large vessels hit the ground with a sound that could wake sleeping gods as they both exploded into balls of flames.
The party clear of the blast zone turned to pursue their target and could see Nameless’s Skiff flying at full speed pulling ahead towards a Lightning Rail Station. The parties Skiff gave up the goat about 10-12 miles from the station and the party start walking.
With the sun rising they could see the parched lifeless plain they were in the middle of the only thing visible for miles was the train station out here in the middle of nowhere. The party could now see the arrival of one of the famous Lightning Rail Trains and they picked up the pace as they were sure Namless would board the train to get away.
