Your ship is armed with 4 ballista. Use DMG rules, except substitute airship sailor for siege engineer.
OOC: Siege Engineering skill is typically only used for Heavy Catapults. The Ballista is just a size Huge crossbow that gives medium-sized creatures a -4 penalty to hit (plus, presumably, non-proficiency penalties if they're not proficient with Crossbows)

"We appear to be outgunned. We've got the lead, let's use it."

"Running...good...leave here..." Marius mumbles, clutching his wound. He takes a steadying breath looks over to the fallen Galathon being dragged by Ariel. He walks over to her with a littel difficulty and panted, "I'll do that...your needed...elsewhere." Marius saw her look at his wound from the Warforged and responded, "Worry...about that...later." Marius reached down and grabbed Galathon's body from Ariel and dragged it toward the cabin, off of the deck, where it would just get in the way. Scrap flies off Marius' shoulder and hangs under the railing.

Ariel straightens up and nods...a little dubiously when she regards those wounds.

"Right then...off we go."

She hurries off to her post and...does whatever she can do to help speed the ship along. :)

"I know this guy might get us some ransom but he killed Galathon."Gipp says giving a kick to the fallen mage. "I say we should throw him overboard." Then, looking at the patrol-ship he says: "I think we can outrun them, let's do so." Even so, Gipp takes his place at one of the ballistae.

Tenentet speaks up for the first time. His voice is cold and raspy, as if from the grave itself, "If we begin to fight now, reinforcements are bound to engage us. It is best to retreat and take our revenge another day."

Loot (the fun part)

You find a dragonscale amulet, 2 blue potions, a belt designed to hold potions, a rod, 50 gp and a letter of credit worth 2500 gp, on the mage.
Spellbook?

Thirian frowns at the enemy airship. "Aye, let us be out of here, we'll try and outrun them. If they pursue, and get within range of our ranged attack, fire at will." Thirian puts a general course in for Billingsgate Island. Looking back to see if they follow he adds, "Remember try and cripple their ship first, and stop any of their crew from hurting my...er our ship."

Noticing that Marius is wheezing and stumbling about the deck, Athelstan reaches over and casts Cure Serious Wounds for (3d8+5=12) hp. (bleh, what an awful roll...)

No spellbook.

And so, the air pirates fled, narrowly dodging a few rockets. As they flew over the landscape, they flew over the endless ocean.

Then, they ran into a sailing ship. The ship, a mile below, did not spot the piratical aircraft high in the sky, and appeared to be a merchantman flying the flag of House Lyrandar. (Airships are expensive!)

What do you do?

Vasintze took his position along one side of the ship, aiming with his hand "I think I can hit it Niahaha!" he said, looking from right to left, quickly.

Once the immediate danger of the patrol ship had been dealt with, May took a relaxed seat near the ship's wheel- ready if her skills were needed, but out of the way of any more physical work. From the crew's activity, she was able to figure out that another ship had been sighted. She spoke lightly, mostly to the captain but loud enough for most of the others to hear. "So, is it the release of some pent-up aggression we've found, or is it the bait for another trap?"

"I don't know," Ariel says, peering down over the rail.

"Shouldn't we be getting Galathon back to life? It'll be a harder fight without him...and he'll be mad if we raise him and he finds out he missed a raid."

Thirian

Thirian looks upon the ship, grins, and then presses his lips tightly. "As much as I would like to wreak more veangeance upon my kin for their banishing me, it would not be the wise choice at the moment." He looks to May, "Take the wheel for a moment." Once she is in position, he walks over to the rail and peers down sighing. "We don't want to reveal our position so quickly to those that would seek to imprison us once more. We risk that if this ship doesn't reach it's destination. Once we have landed and seen to Galathon we can reestablish our name and seek our revenge."

[sblock=ooc]How are we going to pay for the raise? Sell Galathon's equipment, sell ours, ask a favor, or perhaps once we are a little more sure we are safe, rob somebody blind and get the money that way?[/sblock]

[sblock=OOC]Well we have the stuff we looted from the mage and warforged. They should provide allmost all of the fee.[/sblock]

Caden takes this time to see what has been removed from her quarters, taking care by the alcchemy kit and such.

OOC: And while we can't pillage a town, per se, we could set up operations outside of town and hold up any travellers coming out of it who look wealthy enough.

And so the air pirates went to Billingsgate, where, they were greeted as heroes.

Now what?

OOC: Everyone gains 2000 XP. I'm feeling generous.

Thirian

Thrian steps of the deck of the airship onto the deck to greet any of their fans. He looks to his crew. "Let's find out what of value the warforged and the wizard had, we'll then find a healer for Galathon." Thirian then sets out, towards any dealers in illicit goods where they could identify and cash in their loot.
