Airship (Stronghold)

An airship is a flying bastion, able to carry crew, passengers, and supplies on long voyages. Many airships are well-appointed or even opulent, as such a vessel requires a massive investment.

Airships are unable to use the disguised, island, mountaintop, underground, or pocket dimension features. They must have the mobile (as detailed in “Heirs of Command: Marshal Archetypes” in Gate Pass Gazette Issue #9) and floating in the air features. As a stronghold, you may treat your airship as a haven .

Special. As airships are often modified water-based ships, the size cost, and staff of an airship is determined not by its square footage, but by a corresponding vehicle (see Tables: Land, Water, or Air Vehicles in Chapter Four: Equipment of Adventurer’s Guide). Depending on the nature of the base vehicle, the Narrator may or may not choose to apply the cost multiplier of the floating in the air feature—a cloud galleon is already equipped to fly, but enchanting a mundane warship will likely be quite expensive
