Seafaring in the waters of Atharill


The ubiquitous boat design for intercity travel on Atharill is the Nylack. Dimensionally, Nylacks are a middle ground between the Caravel and the Galleon, usually measuring about 35 meters in length, with two masts about 8 meters high. As on the galleon, there are multiple decks and the height of the main deck from the water is about 15 feet. The average distance a Nylack makes on a full day sailing in good conditions is 72 miles. With 20 slots for oars in the cargo deck, the Nylack can be converted into a row boat when the wind dies down completely, though this cuts the speed by about two thirds. Nylack’s are most frequently constructed from Lahad Pine, a tree indigenous to Atharill. Wood cut from the forests of the Verormang foothills is particularly prized in Nylack construction.
