    Elan's little rhyme cracks me up, but also speaks to a sad little middle schooler in me.

    I can only assume he's trying to prove his 7th-grade teacher wrong about what counts as a rhyme. :P

    Yeah, rotating metal blades for forward propulsion is a bad idea when you have a giant within easy reach of them. Oh, oh!

    my mind is on the third giant not being able to hold on with his arm chopped to bits like that. Would give Bandanna a good amount of credit that she needs to keep her crew in line. just enough "i made the right choice" to stop an immediate mutany, but not enough to stop one outright.

    Haley's using it, remember?

    By the way, I wonder if Elan has ranks in Use Magic Device. I think it's a class skill for Bards, but we've never seen Elan(or anyone, really, before Haley bought all those wands) use that skill much. The only other person I remember using UMD was the lizardman Rogue(forgot his name) using a Teleport scroll.

    Here's hoping this third one won't be holding on for much longer. Speaking of skills, what have we seen from Elan skill-wise? He should have a lot of points as a human bard, even with an Int penalty not being unlikely.

    Ha, nobody respects Roy for getting killed by the ground.

    I kind of figured they were already at full speed, under the circumstances! I guess that would have caused maneuverability issues, with all the mountains? Given that Bandana is asking the steersperson whether it's OK, that's what I'm going to assume.

    I wonder what's up with the third giant? He didn't jump with the others and isn't lumped in with "strongest of the clan". Well, maybe he just decided to time it differently. Looks like he may have lost his axe, but he still might find a way to gum up the engine from there.

    Is it though? To me it looked like he didn't make it and got his arm slashed on the way down for his efforts.

    Well, there's a slight stroke of luck. One less problem for the Mechane anyway.

    The title and the 'whunk' leads me to think he grabbed the back and his arm is getting tore up because of it.

    I really hope those giants fall, and don't survive impact. It would vindicate Roy a little

    At least the 3rd giant lost his ax.

    I note that Andi isn't screaming for mutiny. We may have been reading too much into her complaints.

    To be fair, Raiders of the Lost Ark didn't have an airborne fight, just a fight on the ground around a plane. Indiana Jones and Last Crusade at least had someone defenestrated from a zeppelin in it, so I'm inclined to think of that one first. "No ticket!"
