Great list, but note that those all look like 'western' or European ships.  We would definitely have other designs as well, like 'junks', catamarans, reed boats, feluccas.... it all depends on the material available and the type of technology and culture of the designers!   The Mullogs should have little reed coracles - the Stratanian merchants would need broadbeamed trading ships - our pirates fast 'corvettes' (no, NOT the car...)   and of course we can invent our own names, like 'ducraer', for some of them...

Yeah, I believe the whole ship design of the galeon is already very influenced by using cannon.

guess we should make this two different threads though. One concerning travel speed, one for ships.

Minas and Judiths comments are of course valid: most of the shipusing cultures don't have their shipdesigns fleshed out. Those giant Varcopas' ships for example only reside in Talia's head and I never had a specific picture in mind for Stratanian ships: there's still a lot of development to be done here, especially if we go into non-western/fantasy designs of sea travel.

Unless someone goes ahead designing them, I think for the matter at hand we can stick with more general stuff like 'large sailing ship' 'fishing boat/ducraer' and 'galley', terms like that. I'm going to check with some of my gamemastering roleplaying friends and see if they have some interesting documents on travel distances/speed.

AND... given that this is already three pages and an important issue, can I ask again:  Art, can you move this whole discussion into the Team Projects Forum?

And then can everyone go look at the current project?  (bats eyes hopefully) :)

I'd love to give the pirates a sort of low bottomed 2 sailed ship, really small. Maybe smugglers, not much room for crew, but loads of cargo space, designed to go into shallower water where other ships cannot. I've got a doodle of it somewhere.

Renamed and moved the thread to the "Projects Proposals" Forum. But one project after the other - before the other one isn't finished satisfactorily we shouldn't try to open up other projects.

I'll try to clarify the technical side of the Flash movie thingy this weekend, if that works out fine we basically need the data we want to display.

Hey developers -

I know I'm new here, but this seemed the right place to ask.  On the map of Santharia, there is a scale that reads 1:5,000,000 on top and 100-200-300 on bottom.  I was curious what the relationship is between the 1:5,000,000--if those were strals or leagues or peds (!!) or if anyone had figured it out yet.  It's for a character I'm working on, trying to figure out how far she could travel in a given time.  I'm kind of a nut for accuracy.

Thanks so much, and I hope to post more as a developer soon!

Strals (=km) Marcogg-Chondra ca 200 strals

I'll repost the main distances soon.
