    Feeling true terror for the first time in a long time, Maia scrambles frantically at the controls of the small craft. "AHHHHHHH!"

    In a near panic, Maia grabs hold of something that looks like it could help.

    After giving it a good solid yank, one of the sails comes loose, and starts to collapse down on itself. Now instead of a smooth glide, you are in a more... interesting trajectory.

    "Looks like a little ship to me, Barty." Melanie replies, her young face weary and drained. "If this place didn't drain me like it did I could go up and try to help them, as it is though..." Her lips quiver slightly in a sad frown. "I'm not much use I'm afraid."

    So, apparently, my costume ability to fly doesn't function so Melanie is feeling somewhat useless.

    A brief explantion of the controls. (now that we are on the topic.)

    There are four levers, three wheels, two sails, and a smallish balloon. Maia just pulled the leftmost lever. You do not have any idea what any of thee things do, since you aren't mechanically inclined.

    One last note. You don't have enough time to try everything out. Maybe one or two more levers. You may roll a 1d20 with no modifier for sheer dumb luck.

    Melanie pouts prettily at Grym. "Just because I can't fly doesn't mean I can't protect myself, Grym." She says, but she does move behind her surrogate, quasi-self-taken, sister.

    "Sweet light above,
    Your maiden calls.
    Answer my plea.
    And your love shall shine through me.
    "

    She recites the words softly, barely at the edge of hearing, but the flash of white light that follows is quite clearly visible - even with the aura of the place damping it - as soft radiance soaks into her clothing, transforming it into something far more durable.

    As the little craft drops away from The Lady's Gambit and into the wide blue aether, Kieran's heart skips a beat.

    As it wobbles, then suddenly drops, it's all he can do to maintain his composure.

    Lady have mercy!

    The most desperate prayer in the cult of the Lady, for few would dare call upon what passes for the aether's mercy.

    'Lookouts! Report!'

    Lynn and Arryl sick, Rok missing, and Maia and Erin on a swift drop tae the ground. Lady, what have I done?

    Kieran looks to check that Aimari is by his side, then looks out over the dead land once more.

    We have 1 more level, and the 'Don't ever pull that lever' lever. Erin tries to remember anything he can that the engineer said while he tried to help him put this together, hopefully something that would be helpful.

    How big is the ship? Would it be possible to either catch it and slow its fall or lift it with a Gust of Wind spell? Do I have time for either?

    He's not so much a captain type so much as he's had experience working as a mercenary. While he's up for the leadership role, he's more likely to try and just keep every together out off habit. Also, Gentleman's Agreement as a mercenary: he'll watch your back and he expects you to watch his.

    Bellamy lands near the crash site and leaps from the saddle, his hat falling off as he lands, "Bruce, keep guard," he tells the dire bat, "they look like they were trying to escape from that ship above us. We could be attacked at any moment.

    Turning to the victims of the crash he calls out, "Is anyone hurt?" If anyone is injured he singles out whoever has the worst wounds and immediately cures them. Standard triage says that this would be anyone unconscious rather than the person making the most fuss but after that anyone who is bleeding heavily.
