Maiden Voyage of the Drakeshana

After weeks of delay, Ysora completes the Kojan Caravel Quest and the first guild caravel is constructed!

The stacks of knotted timber collected by the guild months ago were depleted, and further timber donations from Hagan and Dengorian were used as well. The refining went smoothly, thanks to the plank production manual Ragnaroth took from the corpse of a foul creature he slayed.

Ruache crafted the sails, rigging, and ironmongery needed, then waited for Ysora to finish the construction in Khal. He was fairly patient, but dwarves do get bored after awhile and he was soon performing handstands around the ship construction tables.

Finally the caravel was completed, given the name "Drakeshana" and launched from Khal harbour. For her maiden voyage we took her down the river to the east, then north out to sea. On reaching the sea portal we were transported effortlessly to Kojani waters, and we sailed her into Tawar Galan. There was a close call when our caravel was nearly rammed on the port side by a ferry galleon, but she sped forward out of harm's way and docked safely in the harbour for the night.

Ooow, these screens look sweet.
I favor the sea portal... Vanguard is really nice looking with the water shaders, etc...
And the boat looks impressive, too.
How much work is it? Compared to plot building in HZ?
