Long Story

The party is in the tram taking them through The Elemental Plane of Water, a deep underwater seascape. There are many scary ocean creatures here, and currently, the ocean is trying to get in, by way of the open windows. Ya boy Toby is able to create a wall against the wall, to seal the windows shut, but is asked by Bercy Hamhands to make them into glass so that they can see the world outside. It's actually kind of awesome. The water is strangely luminescent, and there is seaweed and kelp floating around. They can even see what looks to be figures approaching them, and ass they get closer, we can see that they look like Gungans from Star Wars, oh no! At first inquisitive, the creatures suddenly look very startled, and retreat, as the light around the tram begins to dim. Looking up, the party sees an enormous "missile-shaped" creature, the largest thing they've ever seen. It eats some other fish, terrifying poor Toby.

Skud, meanwhile, in his premium seating has begun to feel a certain power emanate from deep inside him. This is, first of all, gross, and second of all, due to the fact that he is a Water Genasi, meaning that he is currently in his Element here, so to speak. He doesn't however, have any memory of being here before. The others find a visitor's guide to this world, and learn that the train is taking them to a city called Dreikfelldur, which is where the Colosseum lies, in which they will be competing in the Bones tournament. Their competitor: A non-gendered Storm Giant named Jilling the Bonehammer, under the management of someone named The Maroness. They fight with a Bone Kraken, which might just be the most badass thing I've ever heard of. Finally, the train approaches the city, and we see it is made of coral.

As they de-board the train, they are met by a Kua-Toa named Skipper, who tells them about the city. There is a tavern they should stay at, called The White Flounder. He makes reference to the fact that it is incredibly rare for Jilling the Bonehammer to be actually fighting, only on special occasions. Also, it's his (Skipper's) birthday today, and so the group wants to throw a party for him that night. After grabbing some Pina Coladas, they finally make it to the White Flounder.

Short

The party has a run in with a giant "missile-shaped" thing before making it to the city, meeting Skipper and being directed to The White Flounder. That' mostly it. This was mostly a fun RP episode, which I love.
