Lonely Voyage by romansro
A group of adventurers are sent on a dangerous quest by a powerful sorcerer. They travel to their destination on a fast airship that is kept afloat by a bound fire elemental.
They depart from the sorcerer's floating tower, finding an opening in the clouds. Many dangers and great treasures await. A ray of light breaks through the clouds and seems to be a good omen for their journey.
