Types of Ship

Ships are designed based on a set of stats for the basic design of the ship, e.g. a Frigate, a Sloop, etc. They are then edited based on the rules for the faction that built them. On the character sheet design, the Faction and Type of the ship are written under the name of the ship.

Warp Ship

The staple of the Zer’kt navy. A warp ship is specially designed to withstand the relentless forces of the Elemental Chaos. They are often mounted with enchanted heavy plating and resistant sails and rigging, which make them less maneuverable than most sea bearing ships.

Arnorian:
Ships built in the Kingdom of Arnor are constructed using special enchanted materials designed to increase their speed, maneuverability, and accuracy. All Arnorian vessels gain a +1 to Speed, +1 to Sailing Speed, +1 to Reflex, and ignore the -5 penalty for targeting enemy weapons.

Ships designed in the Urbaz Empire are designed to be tough and versatile. All Urbazden ships gain a +1 to AC, +10 to Max CC, and gain a +1 bonus to attack for each magic weapon or armor attachment added to the ship.

Zer’kt:
Ships designed by the Theocratic Republic of Zer’kt are usually made for use in the outer planes. Every Zer’kt ship gains a +1 bonus to Fortitude, +1 bonus to Speed, and Resistance 5 to all attacks with the fire, cold, thunder, lightning, or force keywords when in the Elemental Chaos or Astral Sea
