The leader grabs Harry and shoves him. The intent is to push him off. "I am not French. I am not a Brit either. I go where money is and your zeppelin will sell for a nice sum of money."

The searchers [more accurately pirates] draw their sabers and guns "everybody into the dining hall. NOW or you will get shot!"

"Well, we will see about tha'" the Scotsman says as he lobs a heavy smoke grenade in the room.  He then swigs his axe, imbedding it in a nearby "frenchman's" chest, leaving a dull thud. "Get down e'erbody!"

The noise of the smoke grenade going off, was the signal for both parties to start fighting. The pirates had the advantage: They had weapons already in hand and ready to go. The crew members on the zeppelin were not as fortunate.

In the engine room Crewe and the ambassador were attacked by a goon. Needless to say the ambassador made himself scarce. Crewe on the other hand drew out his own cutlass captured years before (bullets would just make holes in the zeppelin=not good). The goon was good at swords play, but the retired captain had more experience and soon the goon scrambled from the engine room.

The leader walked up to where he shoved Harry making sure that he'd fallen into sea.

The Scotsman was attacked by two pirates on either side. Both of them wielding cutlass.

William kicked the legs out from under one of the pirates luckily, but he wasn't as lucky with the seconds. The second pirate managed slash the Scotsman's left arm wide open, before his axe found his head. William takes a second grenade, a small, clay knockout grenade and tossed it towards the area with the most pirates.

Harry expected he would be pushed off a ship one day so he always came prepared. He pulls a lever located in his hip and a set of wings sprouted from under his jacket along with a steam powered flight suit. He stops his decent very easily and flys around the ship to get a sneak attack on the leader

"Well that wasn't very nice" Harry says as he kicked the leader of the pirates off the ship. From both legs came a holster for two signal handed machine guns.

"Anyone want to party?" he asks

Another silhouette loomed out of the darkness in the meantime, a sleek, torpedo shaped zeppelin appearing from the dark.

Harry, standing on the outside of the airship was a convenient target and his offer for a fight was almost instantly taken up. Multiple shots from varying directions went off.

The grenade(s) in the dining hall cause chaos to no end. Pirates and crew alike slash and shoot at anything moving. Passengers are screaming, most heading for their cabins hoping for their safety.

The Ambassador and Crewe meanwhile were along with a few crew members holding the engine room. The zeppelins motors were still running (however the controls are not under control) and the zeppelin began drifting in the direction of the French mainland. The ships hypnotist, a frenchman, was trying to figure out who the pirates were, questioning a run-of-the-mill pirate. Not successful so far.

Harry feels the ship tilt and runs to the controls. He gets there find a pirate and portly shoots him in the back of the head. He then takes the controls and steadies the ship

The other airship was turning, exposing its side to the two interlocked zeppelins.

Three pirate thugs appear behind Harry, one of them rushing at him to tackle him.
-----------------------
Paris, France:

Background on the war/ order of the Dragon:

A thousand years ago, Charlemagne had died leaving in his wake three sons who fought for control of the throne. The Frankish kingdom split into three warring states and if that wasn't enough, Vikings were luring to the north just beyond the borders and there was a real threat of a Muslim invasion through Iberia. Back then a dedicated group of knights had banded together and formed a group to protect Europe's stability. They called themselves the Dragon.

Initially the Dragon wasn't successful. Vikings raided, looted, burnt and destroyed many European cities and villages notably in England, northern Germany, Lotheria [Country between Germany and France] and the Frankish kingdom. The vikings went unchallenged. Magyars [Hun-style tribe] from the Central Asian plains also pushed into Europe causing more chaos and confusion, but they eventually settled in Hungary like the Huns before them. The dark ages were indeed dark for the Dragon.

Over the years the Dragon was able to mount some powerful French kings. The plague in 1348 caused the labor force to decline steeply and the lords couldn't afford to buy labor. Kings did. This helped caused kings for the first time since Charlemagne to have real power again. French kings in particular became powerful. The Dragon eventually didn't so much care for the stability of Europe as opposed to the security of France.

Over the years the Dragon grew lax and the order eventually found France in the middle of the Hugenot wars [Religious war between Calvinists and Catholics]. Under the leadership of Richelieu, the dragon ended the Hugenot wars and brought peace to France. The Dragon used this opportunity to create a spy network throughout France. However, in the HRE trouble stirred and France entered the 30 years war. It turned out that the Dragon's rival, the Black Hand was trying to unify the German states against the French. An attempt that failed miserably.

The Dragon then became a powerful in the French government and they controlled a vast spy network throughout Europe. The Black Hand had been defeated and now the Dragon was able to relax. However, with the American Revolution everything went wrong. The leader of the Dragon was trying to suppress the liberal ideas that the American brought to France, but public anger at the first and second estate flared and the French Revolution started. The leader of the Dragon tried to smuggle Louis out of the country but the Black Hand had infiltrated the Dragon network and figured out the kings location. Not to mention the king was riding a coach with the royal ensign on it (might as well have put up a sign "I'm here! I'm the King and I'm escaping).

The next leader of the Dragon tried to arrange a deal with a ambitious general, Napoleon. However when he crowned himself emperor, he didn't keep a peace deal with the other European nations and started the Napoleonic Wars. Napoleon eventually lost at Waterloo, and France got restored the Bourbons. They weren't pouplar and a few years they were removed from power (2nd revolution) and France formed the 2nd Republic. A move that the Black Hand was proud off. The Black Hand now in control of France tried getting their own president elected. Problem was that he was of German descent--->a foreigner.

Again people went to the streets and the Black Hand tried to keep order. However they underestimated the people's will and eventually Prussia and Austria joined to help the German descendant president to power. The Republic now lead by a senate immediately mobilized for war. The Dragon was helping the French and the Black Hand was supporting Prussia and Austria. As France began beating the living crap out of Austria and Prussia, Britain (like always) joined the war on their side to balance the sides.

Behind an oaken desk, the leader of the Dragon sat. He was a younger man, a descendant from the famous Richelieu who'd sat at the exact same spot 200 years earlier. On his desk was a message from his spy in Essex:
"The British Ambassador has left to Rome. Coming through Germany carrying secret military plans for a powerful weapons. Heading towards Hamburg."
The young Richelieu smiled. Perhaps the Dragon can get a hold of the weapon before the Black Hand does.

Spotlights from the unidentified ship blazed down on the two zeppelins locked in combat; the Merlin and Tournade alike. "Attention, attention! Abandonnez vos armes et preparez pour nous nous embarquer sur vos dirigeables!" The message repeated once and then switched to English, albeit rather accented English. "Lay down your arms and prepare to be boarded!"

The spotlights kept the ship's markings out of sight, though it was almost certainly French, and a single flash was followed by a streak of bright orange light flying over the Tournade's dorsal rudder.

The pirate tackles Harry, pushing the two of them into the controls. The zeppelin began rapidly drifting at the French ship whilst starting to turn in midair.

Neither the pirates nor the general crew wanted to put down their weapons. As tables in the mess hall began sliding to one end of the wall, pirates and crew immediately began shooting at each other again.

The French zeppelin fires again, this time a full salvo that sends the ship drifting slightly back away from the two airships before it. The shells slam into the Tournade, ripping its frame wide open and causing significant, though not fatal, damage to the pirate vessel.

The pirates and crew are still fighting in the mess hall. The Ambassador is in the engine room at the back of the zeppelin and Crewe is helping fight off the pirates.

The pirate ship meanwhile follows in pursuit of the zeppelin.

The French ship fires another salvo at the pirates, before turning and beginning to steam after the Merlin. Being a warship its engines were quite powerful and it was beginning to gain.

Harry can see that the french ship is gaining, he turns in the intercom "Ladies and gentlemen if you look behind the ship you will notice the pirate ship is on fire. And if you look to the left of directly behind us you will see a pissed off french war ship wanting to shoot us out of the sky"

"Keep flying. We must be near the Dutch shore soon" Crewe said "we need to bury the crew that perished and find new crew members when we get to Hamburg."

The pirate ship, flew away hastily being a former French military ship as well.
