After stocking up in Caldea the party set sail for The Pearl in the SS Jizzpiss. It was a rather uneventful journey until they happened on a pair of Sky Sharks that were flying nearby. Brad Chadsmith tried to fire a bomb out of the cannon at the sharks but it exploded early and only attracted their attention. As the sharks moved in on the SS Jizzpiss Ray Jennings injured one with a well aimed ballista bolt, and Char jumped on the other one causing it to thrash around wildly. While this was going on Magic Mike-tron readied a summoning ritual and brought forth a dragon but was unable to fully control it.
Char managed to soothe the mind of the shark she was riding and brought it under her control. Magic Mike-tron performed the ritual of shrinking to shrink Brad but it only shrunk his body, leaving him with a relatively gigantic head. Magic Miake-tron then tossed tiny Brad into the mouth of the shark Char was riding. This turned out to be a risky move as shark began to swallow Brad. He attacked it with his tiny sword but it was ineffective. Ray fired another ballista bolt at the shark's head which killed it but did impale Brad as well gravely wounding him. The dead shark began to plummet to the earth and Magic Mike-tron convinced the dragon to save Char and Brad so it dived after them. Seeing its partner die the injured shark attacked the ship damaging the ballista and biting off Ray's right leg as he tried to flip away from it. The dragon caught the falling shark and brought it back up to the ship where Char gave Brad a healing potion to save his life. The other shark continued its attack but the party was able to defeat it with cannonfire, a flaming sharknado, and finally Brad putting it out of its misery with his tiny sword. With the threat of the sky sharks behind them the party nursed their wounds and continued onto the Pearl. Char made a peg leg out of a shark bone for Ray to stand on.
They arrived at the Pearl and went to the mining camp. Everyone donned Formian costumes Brad had obtained to try to blend in. The mining camp had been abandoned and ransacked but after searching around they found Armas hiding in the outhouse. He said he was left behind and hid here when the Formians came and searched the camp. The miners used to have a good relationship with the Formians but recently something changed and they became very aggressive. Just then the party spotted some Formian drones moving towards them along the outskirts of the town. Magic Mike-tron threw his Boomdagger at them and Char tried to use a fire whip but the drones jumped on Char and forced her to the ground. Ray rode on JFK and charged through the drones to save Char and killing all of them. The party used the bug juice and pheromones from the drones to coat their disguises to hopefully avoid detection in the hive, then they made camp and planned their next move.
