You dine with lady Bleth and during the meal, lady Bleth offers you her father’s old air ship, a contraption that he built with Nimozaran back before she was born. She heatd that it had flown, but she never saw it airborne herself.
The next morning she takes you to a barn outside the village that contains a workshop, alchemical lab, and an air ship.
You study Bleth’s notes and learn how to fill the bladder that keeps the ship aloft. You also find the power source to fly the ship and the arcane controls that raise, lower, and move the ship back and forth.
After a test flight, you load your horses, provisions from lady Bleth, and yourselves, and begin your flight. You cross the Winter River on the first day. You see barges carrying cut stone down river towards Fallcrest. When you pass over farmland, you see workers with overseers bringing in the harvest.
The bladder springs a leak near the end of the first day. Beandr finds some tree sap to seal the leak.
On the second day you reach the Cairngorm Peaks a range of low mountains. Just as you are looking for a place to land for the night, you see four objects travelling through the air towards you!
