Ep. 4: „The Last Raid of the Sky Pirates“
Having been the bane of many an airship crew for quite some time now, this motley crew under the command of Nadakhan needs little further introduction.

Although the „Misfortune's Keep“ could probably catch or outrun most airships, she was no match for the swiftness of the „Skytanic“, with a top speed whispered to exceed 60 knots! Nadakhan needed a more intricate plan, if he ever wanted to meet his beloved Dilara again. Surely, he was determined...
