'Its about time you actually got useful Dinoboss. Maybe this time you'll actually catch someone out to get us before they actually do.' Growled Grunt. He then looked at Glitch. 'Convoy might be dead. Or maybe not. Point is, we stay on guard from here on out and keep an optic open for Convoy. If we find his body smash all to slag, he comes home with us either way.'
As Reaper reached high into the sky he saw a thick smoke in the distance from some far away mountains, not feint smoke like the trails of a pod coming down, but thick black endless smoke. From his great height, Reaper could see the smoke was obscured by the thick mountains - and it was a long way away, a long way.
They would have to travel across the plains, through the Valley Of The Trees and right through the thick forest to reach it. It was only the enhanced vision of his optics that Reaper could see that far away, and even then the thick smoke was still very distant...
Reaper looked at the smoke for a moment, wondering what could have caused it. Then it dawned on him.
+++COMM to all Cybertrons+++ "This is Reaper. I've got a sighting up here. Smoke. Lots of it. I'm sending you all an image of what I'm seeing. I hope it isn't what I think it is." +++COMM+++
Reaper sent the other Cybertrons an image of what he'd just seen, noted with distances and any recognisable landmarks. He then prayed silently to Primus that if the smoke was because of Convoy that he was alright.

Dinboss got several paces away from the others then turned
"I vote we get moving to that smoke. If Convoy made it out he would undoubtedly keep an eye on the wreckage in case any of use wander up, but we need to get there to scavenge what we can before it burns up. Maybe we can even manage to save the ship and get off this rock."
"It will take almost all day for him to go and get back, and then even longer for us ground stricken bots. It's a waste of time to send the scouts this far away. We move closer then scout it out. It is probably best to get away from this land mark anyways. It screams rally point."
"Well then, if we are going to camp out, then I suggest we move to the tree line. I'm not sitting on my tail pipe out here in the open waiting to get slagged while bird boy gets to spend the day doing what all of us should be."
Dinoboss turned and began walking towards the forest. He didn't wait for an acknowledgment from Grunt, he just did it.
"Anyone else care to join me or am I going to be going it alone?"

Grunt realized that is internal clock was about to go off, indicating that it was time to revert to his alternate form before a energon surge took over his body. He then turned to Metalingus. 'Metalingus, take first watch. The rest of you, take cover positions and rest. Reserve your energon.' Grunt moved towards the biggest tomb stones he could find for cover.
Reaper pulled his wings back and dived. He flared his wings when he was near the ground and swooped infront of Dinoboss, gently placing the device on the ground. Reaper then climbed steadily. He flew as fast as he could in the direction of the smoke. He was growing more cautious of the plume of smoke by the nano-second.
+++COMM to Grunt+++ "Orders received. En route to the smoke. I'll check back when I get there." +++COMM+++
Reaper's persona had changed in the last few moments. He'd become strictly professional. He plotteded his route to allow him the shortest time getting there and back. He planned to make a wide circle of the area before heading back. Hopefully he'd be able to blend in with some of the local wildlife.
Dinoboss transformed and picked the device up. He got on his com with Reaper
**"Be careful bird boy. Avoid flying directly over the subject area. Keep your distance, watch the tree line. If it is a trap I wouldn't look for it to be obvious."**
Dinoboss transformed again and continued towards the tree line. Once he was there he found a relatively thick section and laid down in it, hiding most of his body. He looked out intently on the graveyard and watched all of the different location he saw as being advantageous for the enemy..
