A Game of Gods: A Multiversal Challenge:
A short distance away, the singer known as Ecco fell into the sea's cool embrace with dismay. He could not understand what had just happened; where was his pod? The Shelled Ones, the Stinging Jellies, the Bigger Singers, the Hungry Ones...where had they all gone, and how did they disappear so quickly? He sang in dismay, but his echoes showed nothing, and no Singer responded to his melody with their own. He was alone. So very alone. So completely, utterly and inescapably alone. He sang a plaintive cry, hoping against hope that someone—anyone—would hear it and answer. Instead, an echo returned to him...and the young Singer squawked in puzzlement at the odd shape of...whatever it might be. Perhaps it knows what has happened to my pod, Ecco mused. His mind made up, the young dolphin rose to take a deep breath of air and dived in pursuit of the Sinking Thing.
Ecco swam closer to the Sinking Thing, noting as he sang that it wasn't sinking anymore. His echoes returned, showing several more Sinking Things falling into the water from the Sky, and the young Singer found himself confused. What was going on?! One fell not far from him, sinking rapidly, and Ecco tucked in his fins to increase the speed of his dive. It was a strange creature, he decided as he saw it through an echo; it was shiny and angular, like the Shelled Ones, but it had a funny head. W H O A R E Y O U ? he sang to the Sinking One.

Ravage, meanwhile, diverted all power to his new turbine and surged towards the surface, breaching not far from Saren's position with an involuntary gasp. "What is wrong with this water?! I'm rusting, for Primus' sake!"
