A tangle of roots
Luckily, Shayra was agile enough to land feet-first as she crashed through a series of flexible, wooden, curling roots.  They gave way, slowing her, and she crashed down and down, finally holding still, supported by tangles of roots.  Fresh air was blowing, and an odd light filtered through here and there.

Shayra took a moment to make sure she was in one piece still before looking where the air was coming from.

A tangle of roots
From a path she could manage, through the swaying roots, Shayra managed to find her way to an opening, of sorts-- a place she could look out and see..

A vast green sun, below her.  Shadows crossing it, like vast floating islands, or perhaps continents.  Drifting storms, impossibly far away, thunder and lightning crashing within then, rain drifting to fall on a floating island, somehow drawn to it.

Flying creatures that were perhaps the size of islands themselves?  Or much smaller and much, much closer?

A vast world, but how had she come to be here?

Was the entrance to the mine shaft or whatever it was still there?

Technically, it was, but only in the form of a vast chimney above her.  If she'd fallen for any fraction of the time that it seemed like, there was no way for her to climb back up.  She'd eventually fall due to sheer exhaustion.

Shayra looked for a way down, into this strange world.

There... didn't seem to be one.  Not as such.  And that was a problem-- there was no water, no food, and nowhere to go in this tiny cluster of roots.

But there was a tremendous disturbance in the air; the roots themselves began to shake, making footing dangerous, and something vast began to float by beneath Shayra.  Not that far beneath her at all, was it?  If the wind kept up like this, she might not have the option to stay put, in any case.

What was the floating thing? Was it solid?

It looked extremely solid-- and very much like a gigantic manta ray, one the size of a small city.

Did it look like a jump to it was possible?

It did indeed.  Risky, but probably safer than staying here.

Shayra too a running jump, aiming for the manta ray thing.

It... would have been nearly impossible to miss.  This creature was huge!  It was moving, though, and the fall was further than she'd thought...

Acrobatics check, plz

Shayra managed to roll to a safe landing.  Under other circumstances, sliding of the gigantic creature would be a risk; as it was, though, it was simply too vast for that to be a danger.  At least, not this far from the edges of the creature...

The wind blowing past her was quite strong, but that made her look downwind, and in that direction, there appeared to be several flying creatures-- and some people fighting them, as well!

Shayra just observed the people for now.

It looked like whoever was getting attacked was in trouble-- the flying things, which appeared to be a pair of large birdlike creatures, were driving them back, and it looked like the humanoids were getting badly hurt.

Shayra headed down to help out.
