The king’s ship with Plucky aboard has arrived at its home port and the crew has briefed the king. Here’s what we know about Plucky’s escape: A group of thugs from the Beacons of Night led her from the hotel and toward a pier where they had a boat waiting. Before they could board, Plucky activated the mini static electricity generator that Deadpan had given her as a going away gift. The Beacons, enveloped in an electrical field, watched helplessly as she walked away from the pier. Within a half hour she was aboard the king’s ship, and the Beacons were arrested at the pier. I remember how we used to generate electricity–Deadpan says that’s water over the dam.
