Most of the group being tracked by bug warriors set an ambush, Combat ensues as well as some interparty conflict. Mel and SIN come to an agreement about Hawkeye and Sir Reginald with Mell scrapping the parts for now with thoughts of repurposing them for other things via the request.
Sly meanwhile moved to the forest with his sister trying to find out more about his past. He found out he was quite different than he is now, finding out a bit of his past from his sister finds it odd he of all people would do heroic things and actually fight things head on. Finding out he rode Zydrake was news to him and he tried to summon it, lifting his arms into the air and telling one to come to him didn’t seem to work though so he opted to walk the rest of the way and talk more about his past. With a bit of knowledge of the woman known as Agent Manners from the realm of Earth Sly finds out she’s actually one of his old enemies from before he died her in this world. It made him wonder if she was reborn here for a reason, had she died? Also what did she go to another realm to do?
The group meet up after Sly shows up with his sister and her kids. They opt to make their way back into the encampment with the monster within sight. Sly send away his sister with the refugees and non combatants. With the party striking up a deal they each take to combat in their own way. Mell pulling an old lady off a beast of burden commandeering it to get a tactical view of the situation where best to utilize his skills (He rode around behind the beast attempting to get on it’s back via it’s tail). SIN and Gara make it to the largest building to get a layout of the situation and wonder about how to immobilize the monster to use the gun.
Sly went off to find the members of the Convergence and the Aeon Priests faction members who Mel set on one another. Stepping between the two of them before a fight starts and reminding them of a greater threat at hand and that he of all people as a Knight is disappointed in both of them stating they’re better than this. After being scolded by someone they treat like a plebian they seem to think he does have a valid point so they opt to get into the fight although Sly sees the Convergence members disappear. Getting back to SIN and Gara he asks what the game plan in. SIN lets Gara and Sly know besides immobilizing the creature to use the Status Gun the creature has a weakness on the inside. With the Aeon Priest trying to lock the beast down with what looks like a black hole he sees his men dying or being sucked in and tries to run. SIN snarls about the Aeon Priest shirking on his deal for the flying disk. Sly realizing they need to get on the large beast and there’s a flying disk they could use he has an idea… it’s a bit dumb so it’ll probably work.
Sly seeing this disk he thinks about it and tells the other two they probably need the disk since they can get on the monster with it. Stretching Sly asks SIN to throw him at the man on the disk. SIN doesn’t blink much as he shrugs and says sure before grabbing him by the ankles and launching him like a javelin at his target. Like living ordinance does Sly didn’t land on target and flailed grabbing onto the Priests ankle on a now unsteady platform. Several shots over his head hands the man laying on the disk with Sly crawling on top of him. Reminding him a deals a deal and ‘they’ needed the disk now more than him Sly rolled the injured priest off the flying disk while telling him to clench his butt cheeks since this was going to be a rough landing.
Sly realizing the second bad part about this plan was he hand no real idea how to control the disk which was moving at an alarming speed. Seeing the minions of the arm swarming up the sides of the three story building Sly banked the disk and got the others to jump on as they moved toward the beast. Seeing it eat people by the handful there was the option of going in through the mouth, but considering how he was just eating people they probably wasn’t the way they wanted in. Seeing Mel on a lizard desperately trying to ride it onto the tail of the beast Sly looked at the robot and said to grab Mel as they both leaned over the sides snatching him up from his mount by the armpits, Gara shook his head and balanced out the disk so they didn’t die.
Sly suggested looking for a rear entrance into the creature to which SIN and Gara jumped on it’s back since they were not going up the monster’s butt. Sly on the disk with Mel still who took over flying the disk opt to say they should go in through the mouth then getting Sly to jump off. Finding an area that looked like odd crystals on the back the group except for Sly jumped through the portal. Sly tried to get into position to grab the left behind disk before following but the sudden lurching of the beast had it’s neck slamming him into it’s back. With one hand on the disk Sly flopped a bit trying to get up having the wind knocked out of him while he waited for the stars to clear and his vision focus.
Meanwhile the rest of the party saw themselves inside the beast they thought, with two planets in the sky above them and SIN suddenly saying they weren’t on the planet any more or at least connected to the datasphere they all cursed softly as they scouted out the area. It looked like the swamp but ‘cleaner’ or at least nicer. Seeing a light they moved towards it before getting ambushed. Seeing the Frog Lord looking much better and a circlet that seemed to be made of wish disks Mel called him a bastard and muttered he wished he would have thought of making all the wish disks into a hat.
