A rare flying whale enslaved by villains who have loaded it with cargo and attached sails by ropes and scaffolding is being assailed by warriors who want to set it free, first cutting loose the hanging cargo. Which they will sell later on the black market to fund further environmental adventures.
The Scottish Word:


Gaffer are ye sure ye didni feel thon hotch or hear thon splash?

I’m sure I heard it despite the niver endin muittit moaning o this wanless wancheery whale?

Mind, there’s red nebbed whale free-ers in these pairts.

We need tae tak care.


hotch: move jerkily, up and down.

Boss are you sure you didn’t feel that bob or hear a splash?

I’m sure I heard it despite the never ending exhausted moaning of this pitiful miserable whale?

I’m sure you recall that there are red nosed whale free-ers in these parts.

We need to be careful.
