My everlasting attempts of making well-designed ships or flying vessels continue! I must say that this particular part of map-making is SO complicated to get right. I've had past attempts ripped to shreds by hobbyist and/or nautical experts that know better than I. But I inch closer to the best attempt and this is a good contender. This is Duskbringer. A flying vessel that uses a floating balloon and two elemental engines.
The fire elemental (Area 3) is used to shoot fire into the balloon to gain altitude. The air elemental (Area 6) powers the propeller. This ship has enough space and cabins for 14 passengers (including officers), 20 crew members, and 1 ton of cargo. Duskbringer also has three harpoon guns that can be used to latch onto other flying vessels to board them. At the front of the hull, inside the mouth of the red dragon effigy is a weapon's bay with a large firebolt cannon. It is very powerful but they can only aim it by pointing the whole ship toward its target. All in all, this is an awesome location to board and take. Or it can also serve as a wonderful operations base for a party of adventurers who travel a lot around the world.
For our supporters on patreon, this resource includes no lore but I have included detailed descriptions of each area and a statblock for the whole ship. Individual assets of this ship for use in Roll20 are included too.
