The party rescued a Flow survivor drifting through their air envelope.  The young human man appeared to be playing a hurdy-gurdy.  As he came conscious, he was singing a ballad and suddenly realized he was surrounded by a strange cast of characters.  They made introductions and learned he is a bard out of Realmspace whose ship was recently mysteriously lost in the Phlogiston.  He hitched a ride with the crew for the time being. 

As they approached Realmspace, the ship’s gnomish engine experienced a “functional event” in that it was no longer functional and about to explode!  The group desperately tried to fix it, causes several concussive blasts to rip through the ship.  They lost one of their giant space hamsters in the blasts, and the team had to take turns running in the hamster wheels themselves! 

Once in Realmspace, the team was approached by a mated pair of turtle-sharks!  One snatched up Hekera in its jaws, and the other snatched up Khesen!  Jiraiya unleashed volleys of arrows while Zzyym fired magic missiles.  Ruby dimension door’d up onto the deck, and Scraggy rushed up and fired his double-barrel pistol.  Unfortunately, the gun misfired one barrel.  Nonplused, he fired the other!  The explosion sent shrapnel into him and several allies! 

Helg put spiritual weapon to great effect while Neko rattled a turtle-shark with mind thrust.  Khesen was able to break his grapple and escape the maw, and Hekera got free when his attacker was slain.  Edonna and Komorebi enhanced the combat abilities of the team, and they all converged on the remaining turtle-shark.  Hekera used a potion of flying to zip over and engage the beast.  The group unleashed a rain of destruction, and Neko hit it with scorching ray.  Finally, Helg’s spiritual weapon slew the monstrosity!
