The large pliosaur had a cunning plan in store for the Norsemen. As it swam, it kicked up waves as it swings its tail up and down. It would use this to its advantage and swim back and forth underneath the ship. In doing so, it would create ever-larger waves with each swing. Eventually, causing waves large enough to overtake the vessel.

It took one last path back and forth and unleashed a wave large and powerful enough that, should the crew not be able to stop it, would surely capsize the entire ship.

Svegdir Staghelm struggled to keep the convertiboat level as the pliosaur circled around them, flapping its large tail in order to kick up waves and rapids in the water. The boat would shift and rock, like an airplane experiencing heavy turbulence as Svegdir pushed back and forth on both levers to steer his vessel upwards towards the surface of the water, countering the rapids which circled underneath the convertiboat. Finally as the crew was about to reach the surface, another wave struck against the bow so intense that the entire boat was flipped upside down.

The Empyrean Norsemen would hold on for dear life as their capsule was flipped over, their feet now pointing up in the air as their long hair and braided beards hung down loosely below their heads. Svegdir's purple gemstone skeleton key string necklace would once again fall out, this time falling off of his neck completely and landing on the bimini-like rooftop below. The convertiboat had finally reached the surface of the river as it floated back up above the water, only this time with the keel sticking up instead of the armoured rooftop. The Norse explorers were still safe and secured to their seats for now, but they were upside down as Svegdir tried to reach down and pick up his necklace, which seemed to be just barely out of reach as he extended his arm and tried to grab the skeleton key.

In its attempts to capsize the boat, the large pliosaur succeeded in turning it belly up using the waves to propel it. Once again its long snout which was lined with conical teeth attempted to bite into the vessel. Once again, it found itself unable to penetrate the metal object.

In what looked like a bout of frustration it flailed its large head against the boat one last time before retreating. This meal was not worth it and it swam away down the river. The Norsemen had gotten away by dumb luck, for now at least. They still had the threat of being upside down to worry about though.

Staghelm reached frantically for the purple gemstone skeleton key on the rooftop, moving it slightly with the tip of his middle finger. But the key was just a hair's breath out of reach as the pliosaur closed in on his convertiboat, again trying to bite into the capsule with its elongated snout.

As it bumped into the side of the capsized vessel, the key would slide away from Svegdir Staghelm into the reach of the man behind him, who quickly grabbed it with his freehand before handing it forward to the boat's captain. At that moment, the frustrated Xamatohades would brush up against the side of the convertiboat before withdrawing back into the depths from whence it came.

The pliosaur would not go unscathed. The boat was now capsized, but the rooftop covering was very different from the underbelly of the explorer's capsule, being magically scaled armour aligned with razor sharp edges. The bimini-like roofing would almost filet the creature's face as it brushed its head against the topside of the boat. A trail of blood would follow the pliosaur as it swam away. The injuries would be minor and not life threatening, but the sea monster would learn from these scrapes against its tough scaley skin as it retreated into the darkness.

"Look, it is leaving. It is not following," Jonah Marksberg said as he pointed to the withdrawing beast outside his mirror-glassed window.

Svegdir Staghelm quickly pushed one lever on his control panel while pulling the other, and soon the convertiboat would roll sideways like a football, uncapsizing itself with remarkable ease. Everyone else would regain their composure as they reached the surface of the river and looked around to the banks ahead. The sketch artist once again would open his drawing book and start to draw the landscapes in front of him as Svegdir placed his skeleton key string necklace back around his neck and steered his vessel up the Grigori River towards the open lake in the center of Dracos Valley.

As the boat made its way down the river, its inhabitants would be going about with their lives. The Xamatospondylus from earlier had returned, revealing their nature as fish eaters. They would swim in the water and use their tails as fishing lures. They would only need to keep the tops of their heads above the water as they had an extra pair of nostrils there to let them breathe. The occasional squawk came from them as they communicated with each other.

On the banks of the river would surface gigantic crocodilians, Xamatosuchus as it was known. They would come to the land to bask in the warm sun, opening their large mouths full of sharp teeth wide. A few small pterosaurs came by and got extremely close to the beast's teeth, yet it showed no aggression. It purposefully did this so the small flyer could pick its teeth clean, a symbiotic relationship.

At the end of the river was a large lake, Lake Dinesair as it was known. It was a vast open area of water where numerous aquatic beings would live, and all around it was other animals that would come to drink.

The sketch artist's name was Birger Torvesson, and he was the son of a talented woodworker named Torve Niallesson, a great descendant of Norse-Gaelic bloodlines. Torve's great great grandmother had been a Gaelic Celt descended from Coirpre mac Néill, one of the legendary Kings of Tara which existed in Dalraida since old times. Torve's great great grandfather had been a Swedish Norseman descended from Egil Vendelcrow of the House of Scylfings, which itself had belonged to the House of Ynglings long long ago. Birger Torvesson had followed in his father's footsteps by becoming an artist. Only instead of working with wood, Birger decided to make sketchings instead. He knew all different styles of Celtic knotwork, or Icovellavna and Old Norse sketchwork including the Vendel style, Oseberg style, Broa style, Borre style, Jelling style, Mammen style, Urnes style, and his personal favorite, Ringerike style which he used most often, especially when drawing the flora and fauna he was witnessing on the river banks of Xamoyos.

Birger would make light sketches of the sharp-toothed Xamatohades pliosaur that his team had encountered underwater, along with the small pod of manatee-like Xamatospondylus fish eaters that had surfaced around the convertiboat. He drew the rather large Xamatosuchus crocodilians which were basking on the shore, and the small pterosaurs that were flying around them. He took a few small notes, writing in Old Norse calligraphy while also making sketches of some of the plants and trees near the river bank. Jonah Marksberg was still surveying the area and keeping a watchful eye out for any more predators which might attack, while Svegdir Staghelm focused on piloting their small-sized vessel closer to the inlands. They were heading through Lake Dinesair, straight into the heart of Dracos Valley, but after their close encounter with the long-nosed pliosaur, Svegdir would not dare to lift back the protective bimini-like rooftop on their convertiboat until he was sure they had made it safely to the shore.

"How's our oxygen level?" Svegdir Staghelm asked curiously, seeming remarkably calm for someone who had almost just been eaten. Jonah tapped his finger against the strange barometric apparatus on the center console beside him. This small glass-like vertical narrow tube system measured the atmospheric pressure, temperature, water and oxygen levels inside the convertiboat without using batteries or electricity. It also provided a fairly accurate reading for the atmospheric pressure, sea levels and temperature outside the boat as well, giving the small band of Empyrean Norse explorers a better understanding of the environment around them.

"70%, looking good so far, we've got about another week or two before we start to suffocate in here," Jonah replied, before checking the other readings on the strange apparatus before looking around.

"I'm not seeing any water levels inside the boat. Nothing on the floor either. Our armour is still looking good. I don't see any punctures. Everything looks alright", Jonah informed Svegdir, who was too busy controlling the boat to look behind him.

"That's good. What is our current location?" Svegdir Staghelm asked as he steered the karve closer to land, passing over the center of the lake. Jonah Marksberg would look at the strange Norse barometric apparatus again before looking at the other two karls behind him, who were already pulling out their magnetic water compasses and small wooden sundials. One of them would pull out his portable silver canteen mess-kit and poor a small bit of water into a pot, placing the round 70mm wooden compass into the water while the other karl waited for an indication of where to place the small wooden sundial. Within about thirty seconds, they had their answers from the gnomons on the shadow board.

"We are about seven feet below sea level, heading south-south east. Both gnomons are in alignment, one with the latitude, and the other with the sun. It's about mid-day," Jonah Marksberg commented, nodding to the karls behind him as they put their belongings away. Karvi-1 was coasting smoothly now over Lake Dineasair as the Empyrean Norsemen prepared to reach the shore and step out on to land for the first time in months since they had journied across the stars.
