The initial starting position of the Scorpion ships and the Queen’s Dirk “Queenie” after she blasted the ship behind her, taking out its helm.
Queenie fled the original site of contact, and because spelljammers travel at different speeds, some kept up with her and some fell behind, dividing the fleet of ten into two flotillas. With one down, Flotilla 1 is comprised of four ships and Flotilla 2 is comprised of five ships. The opening volley damages both Queenie and her pursuer.
Queenie surprises her pursuer by swinging around an asteroid and coming up facing them head-on, causing more damage.
In order to avoid colliding with Scorpion 2, which is pursuing Queenie behind Scorpion 6, Queenie climbs for all she’s worth. In the meantime, Scorpions 7 and 9, trying to close the gap, collide with and damage each other.
Queenie takes some hits from Scorpion 2, then dives underneath another asteroid to surprise the second flotilla.
Shaundar’s maneouvring causes Scorpion 3 to ram Scorpion 2 head on, taking it out. #3 also gets itself stuck. The other ships from Flotilla 1 continue to pursue Queenie as she heads for the second flotilla. The three ships behind her shoot and damage her pretty well. This is where the ballista bolt goes into the abdomen starboard window and smashes Tyelatae’s leg.
Queenie passes over Scorpion 5 upside down and hits it with everything, including spells. Yathar sends down a Grease spell, which is ignited by the fireballs and sets the ship on fire, though she’s taken some good hits by now.
In hard pursuit, Scorpion 7 drags burning material from Scorpion 5, which is then punched through her deck, into her cargo hold, igniting the rum. As Scorpions 6 and 8, and 9 and 10 maneouvre to avoid each other, Queenie slips between Scorpions 4 and 10 and takes potshots at them both.
Both on fire, Scorpions 5 and 7 strike their colours. Queenie dodges over Scorpion 8, rolling to blast it with spells too, and shoots Scorpion 6 one more time, breaking it apart. But Queenie is not undamaged and Scorpion 3 has pulled itself free of the Scorpion it rammed (#2) now and is coming up, unexpectedly on Queenie.
Queenie dodges the debris of Scorpion 6 and lays alongside Scorpion 3 to board her. In the meantime, Scorpion 8 has struck its colours and Scorpions 4, 9 and 10, being commanded by orcs and not scro, decide that they didn’t sign up for this and flee while they can. The battle is over.
