=='''Story'''==
 +
===Long Story===
 +
First thing in the morning, Lahni and [[The Sorrowful Man|Lanni/Lonny/The Sorrowful Man]] run off to meet with the "Commission", the party responsible for scheduling [[Bones]] fights. Tonight is Bone Blast 42, and they need to figure out what they are going to do until then. [[Zipper]] arrives and gives them breakfast, delicious croissant rolls. Toby asks him about a Zoo, an area with powerful monsters to look at. [[Venduria]] has one! It's attached to a [[Sky Mall]], which [[Dodge Grabbit]] will be doing a signing at later today. Also, it turns out they should have been paying all of these escorts. Whoops. Toby gives Zipper 3 gold.
 +
 
 +
As they walk, Toby begins getting suspicious of Rowan, claiming that she never takes her [[Oathbow]] out unless she has to, almost as if she stole it. Also, she's dodging questions about her father, whom Toby realizes she's never talked about. As the party is mounting their nimbus-cloud things, they're approached by a... we'll call him a strange character. His name is [[David Allen Conan]], and he's wearing a large floppy hat, and the most interesting beard you've ever seen. Also, long spangly robes, hands of a Rakshasa, and spiral eyes that go different directions. Yeah, this is all just to fuck with [https://twitter.com/doodlekm Gaelen] on Twitter, who draws a lot of these characters. DAC a merchant, who's meeting a friend nearby. This friend is [[Benice Murphy]], which is a human-shaped pile of spiders, wearing an ascot, a Steak N Shake hat, and dishwasher gloves. They're also both wearing paisley. This is cruel and unusual. Also, I write these articles as I listen for the first time, so after writing all of the above, Michael requested these characters in the Wiki, and I'm here to say ''I'm way ahead of you, Michael.'' Also, the image of Gaelen's many many characters image that was referenced can be found here: [https://twitter.com/DoodleKm/status/1318277431594262531/photo/1 Image]. This is absolute mad lad energy, and the effort should be wildly supported. Also, it's a great indication of the amazing community that this show fosters! It's great!
 +
 
 +
Zipper is growing ever impatient, so he scoots everyone along to meet with Dodge Grabbit. The Sky Mall is a large, open-air shopping experience. Any kind of shop you could imagine is here, including, <s>Claire's</s> Glaire's, <s>Hot Topic</s> Cold Topic, <s>Spencer's</s> Sponcer's, Uncle Anne's, Dippin' Spheres, Game Go, Coal's, Grapefruit Julius, etc. Also, the Sunglass Yurt (suggested by bigozcountry in the Twitch chat) The mall is also populated with teens, as one would suspect, but they're all bird teens. In the center of the mall, a crowd is gathering around a table with a painting of Dodge Grabbit on it. Toby bribes the crowd with egg rolls to get to the front, while Rowan walks around gathering Teriyaki chicken samples. It's weird that Dodge has built up such a reputation so quickly, considering they last saw him [[Episode 344 - Bonecarding Them All|36 episodes ago]]. Soon, Dodge arrives, waving to the crowd. He's met with both cheers, and boos, weirdly. Even more weird is the harpoon that shoots out from one of the airships above. It strikes Dodge's leg, and zips him up into the air! There's a Paul Blart type that tries to save him, but he gets "blown up by a [[canon]], or something."
 +
 
 +
Toby broom flies up to save him, and the others have a crisis to decide if they even want to help this guy. Ultimately, Rowan decides to stay behind, as does Skud, who really can't see a reason to save this guy, since he's the competition. Seems Skud doesn't really care about the fact that Skud gave them the Bone cards when they last met. That was a nice thing to do. Whatever.
 +
 
 +
Toby uses ''Haste'' to make himself faster, and ties himself to the broom, because that will make him pass out for 6 seconds in 1 minute. He is able to catch up with the airship, which is filled with Githyanki. Is this [[Junpei Iori|Junpei's]] crew? There's also a strange, utra-dark sphere in the middle of the deck. Tim remembers the orb that moved the city of [[Nareev]] [[Episode 226 - The Temple of Solani|way back when.]] Dodge is being held by a pirate, arms behind his back. Another Githyanki, the biggest meanest one, drops one of his Bone cards into the sphere, and it's annihilated! Toby leaps into action, commanding them to release the boy! And of course, this sparks a fight. What follows is, arguably, the most difficult to track damage encounter ever performed on this show. There are so many characters rolling so many different types of damage. There are also some retconns, where damage was supposed to happen, but didn't until later. It's really difficult to keep track of, but I've done my best down in the rolls section below.
 +
 
 +
Toby turns into an [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imix_(Dungeons_%26_Dragons) Imix], and also summons 3 Fire Elementals. All of this fire makes short work of the 6 Githyanki Pirates, with the final 2 using a ''Dimension Door'' to run away. During the fight, Toby had freed Dodge and sent him on his [[Broom of Flying]] back down to the others. Now, he turns into a Water Elemental and puts out the many, many fires.
 +
 
 +
Rowan and Skud, who've been vibing down in the mall, enjoy pizza and Dippin' Dots (which were invented by [[Chilli Vanilli]], btw), are suddenly met by a wounded Dodge Grabbit on Toby's broom. Skud gets the harpoon out, and stops the bleeding, but Dodge is unconscious. Skud uses some pepperoni as a bandage. Rowan hops up to the airship, bringing the broom with her, to see Toby in the shape of the Elder Brain, and using his many tentacles to control the ship. Together, they land the airship. It's named ''Bloody Talon Shrieker (BTS)'', and Toby decides that they are commandeering this one, as well. But first, he turns into a giant eagle and finds the remaining two Githyanki Pirates. He attacks them, as an Elder Brain again, but doesn't kill them. Instead, he brings them back to the ship to question them on how to fly.
 +
 
 +
===Short===
 +
Lahni and her brother run off to get the team a fight with Fuckin Gary. Meanwhile, the rest of the party are led to the bikes by Zipper, where they meet the two most important characters in the history of the show, David Allen Conan, and Benice Murphy. These two are promptly ignored as the gange flies up to the Sky Mall, where the watch Dodge Grabbit get kidnapped by some Githyanki Pirates. Being the only good member of the party, Toby flies up to save him while Rowan and Skud wait down below. Toby is able to rescue Dodge by turning into an Imix and burning a bunch of pirates to death. He leaves 2 alive, so that he can question them on how to fly their airship, which he also steals.

Long Story

First thing in the morning, Lahni and Lanni/Lonny/The Sorrowful Man run off to meet with the "Commission", the party responsible for scheduling Bones fights. Tonight is Bone Blast 42, and they need to figure out what they are going to do until then. Zipper arrives and gives them breakfast, delicious croissant rolls. Toby asks him about a Zoo, an area with powerful monsters to look at. Venduria has one! It's attached to a Sky Mall, which Dodge Grabbit will be doing a signing at later today. Also, it turns out they should have been paying all of these escorts. Whoops. Toby gives Zipper 3 gold.

As they walk, Toby begins getting suspicious of Rowan, claiming that she never takes her Oathbow out unless she has to, almost as if she stole it. Also, she's dodging questions about her father, whom Toby realizes she's never talked about. As the party is mounting their nimbus-cloud things, they're approached by a... we'll call him a strange character. His name is David Allen Conan, and he's wearing a large floppy hat, and the most interesting beard you've ever seen. Also, long spangly robes, hands of a Rakshasa, and spiral eyes that go different directions. Yeah, this is all just to fuck with Gaelen on Twitter, who draws a lot of these characters. DAC a merchant, who's meeting a friend nearby. This friend is Benice Murphy, which is a human-shaped pile of spiders, wearing an ascot, a Steak N Shake hat, and dishwasher gloves. They're also both wearing paisley. This is cruel and unusual. Also, I write these articles as I listen for the first time, so after writing all of the above, Michael requested these characters in the Wiki, and I'm here to say I'm way ahead of you, Michael. Also, the image of Gaelen's many many characters image that was referenced can be found here: Image. This is absolute mad lad energy, and the effort should be wildly supported. Also, it's a great indication of the amazing community that this show fosters! It's great!

Zipper is growing ever impatient, so he scoots everyone along to meet with Dodge Grabbit. The Sky Mall is a large, open-air shopping experience. Any kind of shop you could imagine is here, including, Claire's Glaire's, Hot Topic Cold Topic, Spencer's Sponcer's, Uncle Anne's, Dippin' Spheres, Game Go, Coal's, Grapefruit Julius, etc. Also, the Sunglass Yurt (suggested by bigozcountry in the Twitch chat) The mall is also populated with teens, as one would suspect, but they're all bird teens. In the center of the mall, a crowd is gathering around a table with a painting of Dodge Grabbit on it. Toby bribes the crowd with egg rolls to get to the front, while Rowan walks around gathering Teriyaki chicken samples. It's weird that Dodge has built up such a reputation so quickly, considering they last saw him 36 episodes ago. Soon, Dodge arrives, waving to the crowd. He's met with both cheers, and boos, weirdly. Even more weird is the harpoon that shoots out from one of the airships above. It strikes Dodge's leg, and zips him up into the air! There's a Paul Blart type that tries to save him, but he gets "blown up by a canon, or something."

Toby broom flies up to save him, and the others have a crisis to decide if they even want to help this guy. Ultimately, Rowan decides to stay behind, as does Skud, who really can't see a reason to save this guy, since he's the competition. Seems Skud doesn't really care about the fact that Skud gave them the Bone cards when they last met. That was a nice thing to do. Whatever.

Toby uses Haste to make himself faster, and ties himself to the broom, because that will make him pass out for 6 seconds in 1 minute. He is able to catch up with the airship, which is filled with Githyanki. Is this Junpei's crew? There's also a strange, utra-dark sphere in the middle of the deck. Tim remembers the orb that moved the city of Nareev way back when. Dodge is being held by a pirate, arms behind his back. Another Githyanki, the biggest meanest one, drops one of his Bone cards into the sphere, and it's annihilated! Toby leaps into action, commanding them to release the boy! And of course, this sparks a fight. What follows is, arguably, the most difficult to track damage encounter ever performed on this show. There are so many characters rolling so many different types of damage. There are also some retconns, where damage was supposed to happen, but didn't until later. It's really difficult to keep track of, but I've done my best down in the rolls section below.

Toby turns into an Imix, and also summons 3 Fire Elementals. All of this fire makes short work of the 6 Githyanki Pirates, with the final 2 using a Dimension Door to run away. During the fight, Toby had freed Dodge and sent him on his Broom of Flying back down to the others. Now, he turns into a Water Elemental and puts out the many, many fires.

Rowan and Skud, who've been vibing down in the mall, enjoy pizza and Dippin' Dots (which were invented by Chilli Vanilli, btw), are suddenly met by a wounded Dodge Grabbit on Toby's broom. Skud gets the harpoon out, and stops the bleeding, but Dodge is unconscious. Skud uses some pepperoni as a bandage. Rowan hops up to the airship, bringing the broom with her, to see Toby in the shape of the Elder Brain, and using his many tentacles to control the ship. Together, they land the airship. It's named Bloody Talon Shrieker (BTS), and Toby decides that they are commandeering this one, as well. But first, he turns into a giant eagle and finds the remaining two Githyanki Pirates. He attacks them, as an Elder Brain again, but doesn't kill them. Instead, he brings them back to the ship to question them on how to fly.

Short

Lahni and her brother run off to get the team a fight with Fuckin Gary. Meanwhile, the rest of the party are led to the bikes by Zipper, where they meet the two most important characters in the history of the show, David Allen Conan, and Benice Murphy. These two are promptly ignored as the gange flies up to the Sky Mall, where the watch Dodge Grabbit get kidnapped by some Githyanki Pirates. Being the only good member of the party, Toby flies up to save him while Rowan and Skud wait down below. Toby is able to rescue Dodge by turning into an Imix and burning a bunch of pirates to death. He leaves 2 alive, so that he can question them on how to fly their airship, which he also steals.
