"Plans... eh, not really. The 2000 bits will have me set for a while, so I'll probably just lie low. Maybe to visit family." Vapor chuckles. "Not all of piracy is blood, guts and glory."

We'll just have to try and deal with the eels if and when we encounter them."
"Well- the eels are subterranean. They hate the light, and they only come out for food." Vapour taps her chin thoughtfully. "If we can fend them off with the flamers, that plan might just work."




Time passes. A couple hours later, the Huntress glides into view of the designated area - the intersection between the Ghastly gorge and the shipping lane. Vapor Trail brings the ship to a hover, out of sight of the main shipping lane. "We're here. The Hail Mary will be here shortly, so if you want to set up an ambush..." Vapor looks at the group. "Are we going with hiding in the gorge, then?"

Mori stretches from his resting position. "Sure. That's what you guys agreed on, aye?" Mori was a doctor, not a captain or a pilot, he didn't want to get in anypony's way here and try to make up a plan. Too many cooks and all that. He brings his satchel up to his face and starts preparing his equipment for the hijack...

"I have no objections," Umber says, manning her modified flamer. "As long as I get to use this flamethrower, I'm game."

Frisky Risk pulls a tiny spell book from her pocket, gives it a read, and then zaps the balloon above the ship with her horn. A wave of magic washes over the entire vessel, turning it a color close to that of the wall of the gorge. The smells the crew had become accustomed to are suddenly gone.

"There we go!" she chirps, snapping her tiny book closed. "The eels won't be able to smell us, because now we smell like rocks. And we'll be harder for the Hail Mary to spot."

"Magic! Magic is cheating," Vulcan laughs raucously, clapping his claws together. "I like it."

His claws start to heat up, and he wanders close to the edge of the ship. "Worst comes to worst, the pegasus is right - we can just burn the eels off us."

Nodding his head in mild approval at the display of magic, Apollo took a moment to ruffle his wings before saying "Right. Now all we need is for the Hail Mary to arrive. Keep an eye out everyone."

The gang waits quietly. It's almost silent under the bridge, save the slithering and hissing of the quarray eels, lurking in the dark shadows of the gorge. The few times an eel gets curious enough to investigate, it doesn't take much to scare it off with a show of fire.

All in all, the wait is uneventful, but the silence is unnerving.

A storm starts to brew over the Everfree forest as they wait, black clouds appearing out of thin air and clumping together, roiling like a mass of serpents.

"Dark omens," Vapor comments, staring up at the sky.

Then, in the horizon, there's a glint of metal: the bulk unwieldy frame of a merchant ship, and cruising lazily beside it, the lithe knife-shaped hull of a corvette. Like the Huntress, it boasts a light frame and high mobility, but it is a dozen odd feet longer than the sloop, and much deeper, with a full below-deck and two sets of guns both above and below deck. Two balloons keep it afloat, while cloud engines whirr with energy, keeping it gliding along at a steady clip.

"There it is: the Hail Mary." Vapor says, her hooves on the wheel. She glances at the party. "I'm going in. We'll hit them from below, separate the escort from the merchant ship. You do your best to not die until we close the distance."

"If you have any clever ideas... now is the time to say it."
