A Dragonship

Dragonships are very large and powerful twin-hulled catamarans of the High Elf Navy. [1a]

Once, only Starwood from the Anhara Draconis forest, where Starwood trees grew twice as thick and half again as tall as normal, were used to build hulls of the Dragonships. The trees bled resin glitters like shimmering gold, making the whole hull resemble the scales of a dragon. Since Anhara Draconis was burnt down by the Dark Elves during the Sundering, no new Dragonships will ever be built again. The loss of even one is a tragedy, and epic sagas are sung in the ship's honour when such a tragedy occurs. Thus, those ships only go to sea for war, and never for missions of peace or of less importance. [1a]

Only silver-helmed nobles are selected to join the crew. They frequently have to vie for their place on board, during ritual contests of arms. The Dragonship towers above even the mighty Eagleship. The mere rumour of its main weapon, the Dragonblade, causes sailors of other races to shudder. [1a]

Weapons and Equipment

Each of the twin prows of the Dragonship is set with a Dragonblade, forming a ram capable of slicing through another ship's hull like a knife through butter, shattering them completely. The Dragonship carries distance weapons as well, in the form of two Eagle's Claw Repeater Bolt Throwers. [1a]

  • Dragonblade: Forged in ancient days, long before the Sundering, Dragonblades are forged from truesilver, an adamant and steel alloy. Heated in the breath of the great Dragons, moulded by the mightiest spells of high mages, it may be the hardest substance in the world. They are adorned with potent runes inlaid from the elder days, and most men can be driven insane merely by looking at them. [1a]
