(r'unor is not armed with airships, the concept is unsiutable in a fantasy seting like santharia and is beyond even r'unors considerable technological advantage)


THe r'unorian navey, one of the strongest in the world, has made up for its lack of reasorces, and therefor small numbers of ships, through both the incorperationn of steel and iron in the outer hull and internal structure of vessels(one must understand that in r'unor wood is actualy more expensive by volume than iron) and also by adapting not to the traditional boarding or steady bombardment tactics but to swift hit and run attacks, and ambushes.

Not all ships of this mighty kingdom are of military persausion however, quite to contrary, may interesting merchant velles and even passenger ships call the ports of r'unor home, some are even of unique desnges built exclusively in these isles.

Below is a short list of the basic types of vessles found in the r'unorian armada and merchant fleets(listed in order relitive to average size of vessle)

River Bardge: These vessels are just that simple bardges used for transporting cargo up rivers, there are useualy rectangular with flat bottoms that aid in tranversing the shallower water, they are compleatly unsuted for deep ocean travel

Scout Ship:smallest of the r'unoran fleets vessels suitable for deep ocean travel, these ships have extremly small crews(3-4 average) and measure only 10 or 12 peds from bow to stern, there are used as the name implies for short rang scouting for the merchant or military vessels that almost always are found acompaning it

Corsair: Small highspeed vessles, designed for hit and run attackes they useualy measure 50 or 60 peds from bow to stern and are armed with a solitary catipult on a special roating platform. as well as 4 balista implacements, one faceing port, one starboard, on forward and one aft.

Merchant Freighter:measuring 70-80 peds bow to stern and 50-60 port-starboard these vessles are designed to hold massive amounts of cargo, both grains and wood and other raw materiale to r'unor and finely crafted finished good from the isles these ships make up the bulk of the r'unotian merchant fleet, sometimes converted into troop transports during war-time.

WarShip: 100-120 peds from bow to these ships are useulay reserved for defensive of support rolls to the more agile corsairs. they have 2 gundecks with a complement of up to 10 or even 20 balistas as well as three rotaing catipult platforsm sometimes refitted with levelers or trebuches(misspelled).

Dreadnaught:these are huge vessels, but also slugish, they measure useualy between 200 and 220 peds bow to stern and 150-160 port to starboard, ther have 5 gudecks and are impemented with usualy 20+ stationary balisat implacements and 4 raotaing catapult/leveler/trebuchet implacements... however there primary funtion are as landing platforms for lurker divisions alowing for greater range in flight... there are only a small handfull of these mamoth ships in the r'unorian armada and they class is being discontinued in the near futer due to high mantenace costs and limited aplications

Yup, could be used for an entry on R'unorian ships:)  Mayhaps you could name the ships in the R'unorian way, Xenos? Corsairs e.g. exist at various kingdoms, but the R'unorian could have some special names for their own ships...

But I see you have a name problem. We still need to name the rest of the R'unorian isles!!

Okay then. I suppose hot air would be a bit difficult to hold in midieval level fabric. But it could also be enchanted? Oh well, you seem to have made up your mind, and I somewhat agree with you. (How Terry Brooks did it wasn't too acceptible either. He used technology (crystals) to transform the energy from the sun (collected in sails) into pure energy, which was emitted out the back and bottom as a form of propulsion. Now if he said it was all magic, that would have been a bit fine. But sudden advancxes in the technology was a bit unbelievable.)

Xenos, how about the name K'usari.  It is a kind of hodgepodge but basically means "to run".  The ships are suppose to be fast.  Just an idea.


If you think the sky's the limit, then you have no imagination.

As there are no new ship names coming in, I guess I have to put the entry up the way it is now.

I have to give you a final warning, Xenos!

My time resources are VERY limited, especially lately as I have 20 entries to integrate a week. This means: Compendium entries which are posted here and have an amount of >50 typos/misspellings (in this case I assume we have more then 100) WILL NOT be added before they aren't corrected properly. Thanx for understanding!
