Hi all and welcome to a Thursday write-up! Tonight I am trying my hand at something I truly need practice at but feel like its needed for this week more than ever…
So enjoy and let me know what you think!
The Dancing Drake
The imposing ship of the Harimasu family called the Dancing Drake is a large three sailed trading vessel with four levels.
The main deck supports two entrance points to below deck situated in the centre of the deck and towards the bow of the ship.
Two flights of two sets of stairs on the stern of the ship provide access the two layers of cabins. One to the crews quarters and the higher flight of stairs leading up to the helm which is situated on the captain’s (Kyoko Harimasu) quarters.
The crews quarters has a large mess hall situated on the starboard side and two rooms on the port side, a smaller quarter for passengers of note and a larger one where the bunks, cots and hammocks of the crew is situated.
The captains quarters contains desks littered with maps and papers mainly and a decently sized bed with a curtain hung from the wooden rafters to provide some amount of privacy.
The bow of the ship is raised but provides no real access to below deck.
Below deck is a large open area where several rows of benches and oars are lined up in case the winds are unfavourable. There is also a small (10ft by 10ft) cell for holding people with iron bars from roof to floor and a small lockable cell door.
To the stern and bow of the lower deck is storage for cargo, people or livestock with the bow of the ship having a secret compartment behind a small wall to hide the most valuable, or, vulnerable cargo.
Thanks, hope my mediocre napping skills provide some visuals for the size, shape and position of the ship for both descriptions and combat!
Speaking of which, don’t forget to come back tomorrow for more content where we look at the pointy end of the stick and examine combat encounters for this week!
And, as always, don’t forget to roll with advantage,
