"Hold on, howt-man sailor. I have some bad news, and I don't want you to look bad in front of your commander. But first, let me bid farewell to these children."

"Shirka, all of you, get out of here as soon as you can. Unravel these carpets, and use them to climb up to the roof, and sneak to the forest. Be careful, and when it's safe, let your parents know."

He'll look at the captain but pose the question to all, "can we can piece together the terrain we've seen from our 'balloon' and get somebody with some mapmaking experience to put it all together on paper?"
"Our Leftenant Scott has some skills in that area," replied the Captain.

"Did you call, sir?" came a voice from the passageway. Turning, Tommy and Simon recognized the face of the navigator, Lt. Scott; he was carrying a pad of paper.

"Yes, son," replied the Captain. "Is that your map?"

"Yes, sir," said Scott, handing the pad across the table.

Shirika looked at Artie with some confusion, but she quickly nodded. "We'll do our best, Lord Bey," she said.

"You're an insolent fellow, aren't you?" said Seiler roughly. "Move along now. Don't make me regret supporting you."

Artie turns to face his captor. "That's the problem. Me and the other folks in the airship also don't know where we are or how to get home. If you're planning on taking me in there to make things better, your captain is going to be angry with you, and maybe have me killed. I swear to you, this is the truth."

Artie pauses, letting that sink in. "I can't explain my ability to talk to these people, but think about it, why would we stay here if we knew how to go home? We were attacked by these natives. You know our captain. He wouldn't let the passengers spend more than a minute in danger if we knew how to get home."

If there's any sign that the scope of the problem is setting in: "We need to work together to figure out how to get home."

Seiler paused, frowning. "You're serious," he said at length. "Damn."

"Bah," replied Seiler. "He's still here because we have you. Why do you think we took a hostage?"

"We will," Seiler replied, taking hold of Artie's arm, "right after we take charge of Morgana."

.........

"Well, boys, what do you think?" asked the Captain. "They have us outgunned, and as far as trained fighting men, outnumbered. Do we have any hope of getting our man back?"

"Is there a possibility of moving our balloon to hide it?" Will says hestitantly, realizing how it sounds, "and then organize a sneak attack." He'll wait for the others to chime in as well.

Artie moves with Seiler. "Didn't your mother teach you any manners? You're a fool if you think the airship captain will endanger the rest of his wealthy passengers to save a negro entertainer. Your only real hope is to cooperate pacifically, since you could be just as useful to the captain as the other way around."

"We will have to be stealthy, to say the least. It is such a shame that we do not have any sniper rifles aboard. Taking out targets at a distance would benefit our situation." Tommy will take a short pause here to see if anyone says anything. If nobody says anything then Tommy will say, "the only other thing we could try is a distraction. Send in the Dalar people one way while a small tactical team goes in from behind."

Will looks uncomfortably around, "using the Dalar as a distraction, or a shield... unless we get ourselves as close as possible, then have them provide a distraction from a distance... hmmm, but then there's, what's that you military types call it, cross-fire?" Will takes a second to gather his thoughts. "Perhaps if we have the Dalar provide the distraction from one way, as Tommy said, but we come in from a completely different direction. Has the added benefit of possibly avoiding a fight altogether. As for snipers... you have heard of Catherine's prowess with a rifle, no?"
