23.9 Ship Types

(See also: HELP COMPASS, HELP CREW, HELP SAILING, HELP SHIP COMMAND,

Three types of ships are currently available to adventurers:

1. The Thalassian seastrider can be commissioned through Captain
   Maelstrom in a hidden port in Tasur'ke. The cost of a Thalassian
   seastrider is five million gold sovereigns.

2. The Windcutter is a smaller, nimbler ship able to turn more
   quickly than the Seastrider. This ship has less deck space and a
   smaller room for cabin expansions, and a bit less speed running 
   before the wind. For its disadvantages the Windcutter is available
   for a mere 2.5 million gold sovereigns. To commission one of these
   you should seek out Shipwright Hawkins in the Eastern Shore.

3. The War Galley is a large ship in all respects that can accommodate
   far greater amounts of weaponry, has a higher top speed, and
   catches more wind in its sails. For ten million gold, Scurvy Jim at
   the Port of Mysia will deliver a ship much stronger than the
   other available types.
