Episode 227 - We All Fall Down

Oops. Looks like we really need to grab those items that our good friend whats her name mentioned. The whole “Bringing back Soloni” thing made us more or less not trust all of her ideas. That is on us. But we have to move fast if we want to save Glaine, the Jewel of the East! Hopefully there aren’t many hindrances between us and that book and hat!

Story

Once Toby touched the Globe of Navigation, the whole thing turned red, and a loud siren began blaring. Also, the whole of Nareev began to fall straight to the planet below. Eleanor, hoping that the fall would awaken Soloni to save them all, is saddened to realize that is doesn't seem to have worked. She opens a panel on the floor, so that they can see underneath of them, and indeed, they are falling to Glaine, the Jewel of the East. They are not falling at regular gravitational speed, but slightly slower, though they will still hit and crash into the ground in 1 hour. It would seem that Toby moving the city away from being directly above the White Spire is what caused the magic keeping it afloat to stop. Does this mean that Galanthus is no longer shrinking? We don't know.

Toby cannot use the Globe again to move them back into place, as it seems to have locked up. Eleanor thinks that they can fix it, though, if they go to the library to get the Tome of Knowledge. She runs off and the Ätlän-tã Fælcons follow her. Steve suggests they destroy Nareev, so that the crashing debris will be less damaging than the whole city. Toby expresses his concern over the fact that his parents are down in Glaine and he has no way of telling them to leave. (Why they didn't communicate this idea when they were still down there in Toby's home is beyond me.)

They get to the library, and find the Tome of Knowledge easily. Around the library there are these "weird, gelatinous piles of glob" that are dissolving through the books. Eleanor refers to them as "The Cross-breeds". There is a large hole in the wall, and one of the glob things is currently 5 ft away from the Tome of Knowledge. Eleanor explains: "When Nareev first came here, we did some experiments. We tried to see if we could breed with you terrestrials. And this abomination is the result." Jaela suggests that she give Toby her boots and cast Haste on him, and he go gets the tome whilst she and the rest take care of the goo boys. Toby wants to make a large test tube around the book using Shadowfell magic to keep the goo boys away from it. As he does this and is flying toward the book, Aludra does crazy amounts of lightning damage, only to discover that these things are immune to lighting and multiply when they get hit with it! Things are looking grim for the Ätlän-tã Fælcons. They manage to get the book and kill the slimes (most of them anyway, one is currently trapped in Toby's magic test tube donut thing)! Anyway, Toby reads the book and it says...
