    "Yeah, do it," says Kraken. "Next question, either of you two know magic to talk to our mates outside?"

    OOC: His plan - use the physical rumbleball to give cover to the two outside whilst the Despair Squid hopefully goes for the displaced image.

    The massive shark contorts and twists its body as it channels magic through its unfamiliar form. Suddenly huge twisting bands of weeds sprout from the muddy lake bottom and begin wrapping themselves around the massive bulk of the creature. Dain cries out in surprise and gestures obscenely. Kraken, er, Thom wrenches hard on the controls and drives the huge Rumbleball in between Midian and the attacking beast. Inside, Doral casts his spell and the vehicle blurs, separates, blurs again as the magic takes hold and hides its outline.
    There is an ear splitting grinding and wrenching noise as the two massive tentacles raise up and lash out from the beast. They stretch out an unbelievable distance to strike at the Rumbleball! The first whips past one side of the craft and send up a fountain of muck from the lake bottom before retracting once more to the creatures side. The second slams into the side of the craft, gouging a deep furrow and shearing off one of the spines with the sound of steel grating on stone. Then it too retracts once again.

    Spoiler:

    You recognize the creature from descriptions by seafarers and pirates during the Last War. It is a Steel Kraken, a construct created by Cyre to defend its borders by water. They are shaped after the near-mythical Giant Squids that are said to dwell in the deepest oceans. Their bodies are made from the hardest metals and can tear apart any ship that sailed the oceans. Without direction from their Cyran masters though, they continue to follow their last directives: Destroy any non-Cyrans.

    Whisper grabs onto the wall and holds on as the ball shakes and screeches under the squid's attack. "Might be a good time to try going under the ground," she suggests. "I don't think that thing will bother with things it believes are just fishes."

    "It's a weapon from the Last War...without orders, it's lashing out at anything non-Cyran. But I don't think they'd have built it to attack natural creatures..."

    (OOC - Hm...what about mage armor?)

    "A weapon?" says Kraken incredulously. "Bloody oath. Okay, Ladies and Gents, hang onto your gonads. If anyone can get a messge to those two outside, nows the time." He drives the control column forwards, trying to coax the rumbleball down into the silt on the lake bottom.

    Sure, it is a passive effect like the displacement and affects a creature.
    I'm going to rule it as affecting the bound elemental, and thus the craft.

    Midian Rightson, human druid

    Seeing the massive creature shear off a piece of the rumbleball and the ball beginning to dig into the lake floor, Midian realizes fleeing may be the only option. His shark form spins in a circle, and as it does so, the lake itself seems to surge behind him.

    Standard Cast [urlhttp://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic/all-spells/s/slipstream]Slipstream[/url]. Should bring his Swim speed to 80', I believe. Will hold off move action until I see if the rumbleball succeeds in getting below the surface.

    The injured and enraged elemental fights Thom's control. The lake floor beneath it churns but it does not sink any further. The giant squid struggles to break free of the binding plants but it has waited too long and too many of them are wrapped around its form now. Without an angle on the huge shark and its rider, it lashes out at the Rumbleball once more! The tentacle lashes through the space next to the craft and disappears into the gloom without making contact.

    OOC: The rumbleball failed the check to use earth glide, so you're still sitting on the ocean floor. I will try to get a map prepared soon.
