Book 3: Chapter 1 - Strait to It

Eberron is a world of pulp noir where swashbuckling and intrigue run rampant. The Last War is over, the war to end all wars, but many say the fighting has simply shifted from the battlefield to the shadows.

In the wake of a long and terrible war, a world struggles to find its destiny. Will it descend once more into brutal conflict and end in spectacular annihilation, or will the world emerge at last into a new era of peace and prosperity? One group of heroes hopes to make Eberron a better place. The Grey Company, formed by a collection of heroes recruits new members to their growing ranks -- you among them.

Chaos on the Ship

Zeevan is literally supernaturally acrobatic, with Boots that unfairly boost her even more. She reverses course, and if she wasn't invisible she would be a blur as she navigates the tilted deck and debris. She reaches for the Potion that Taris holds out. As Taris speeds off, she yells "Don't forget about the lifeboats! There are a few that don't look broken yet!"
No problem! I have the Boots of Striding and Springing (+10 land speed), so on top of that I will spend 1 Ki Point as a Swift Action to add +30 land speed on top of that. I reverse course with a single Move Action, and spend my Standard to take the Potion of Levitation from Taris.

I don't want to be stuck in a falling ship, so next Round I plan checking to see if I can figure out how to use/launch a lifeboat. If not, I'm jumping free of the Ship entirely, and drinking the potion once I'm at least halfway down. Zeevan doesn't know how long Levitation lasts, so she'll be conservative on the duration estimate.
Rule Number 12: "A soft answer turneth away wrath. Once wrath is looking the other way, shoot it in the head."

"Summer Blossom, hang on!" Ceridwen shouts to her tiger. She hopes her companions below can make it above before the ship goes down, but for now they are on their own. The druidess does what she can to hang on, and prepares to transform herself into a winged creature before the ship crashes.
