Skyship (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Skyships have been the primary mode of air travel on (Arda) for the past century. Originally these massive, sky going vessels were created, driven and held aloft by pure magic. However, in the last two decades, great strides have been made, reducing the amount of magic needed to create and operate these massive machines. Skyships are constructed like any seagoing vessel with the exception of the materials used. The hull and supports are created using Ghostwood and a traditional ships ballast stones are replaced with airstones (See Lore of Arda (3.5e Campaign Setting)#Materials).

With the advent of the steam engine, bound air elementals are no longer required to propel these mammoths of the air; meaning that pilots of skyships are no longer required to be wizards. This has opened up the skies to a great number of would-be pilots seeking to prove themselves worthy.
