A lot more goes in to building a ship than simple masonry. There's the purpose, which ties into the design portion, and ya always have to consider which parameter you're willing to sacrifice to get the one you want up to the capabilities you want it to run at. Sure, you could drop a fortune and upgrade EVERYTHING, but... Balancing acts tend to be required, even with the most expensive upgrades.

speed icon Speed Ships


Built to be scouts or runners, these ships carry little, require only a small crew, and have little in the lines of defense.
  • Speed *****
  • Capacity *(*)
  • Crew Required *(*)
  • Handling ***
  • Defenses **
Example ships: The Raptor, Phaeton's ship

adept icon Adept Ships


These ships’ purposes vary by owner or designer. Some are built to accommodate loads, others to hit fast speeds. Few manage both. An Adept usually falls somewhere between a Speed ship and a Bulk ship. Crew varies based on design.
  • Speed **(**)
  • Capacity **(**)
  • Crew Required **(**)
  • Handling ***(*)
  • Defenses **(*)
Example ships: The Sally II, Shard's ship

bulk icon Bulk Ships


With all that a Bulk ship can manage, it can’t go very fast. If cargo area or defensive weaponry are sacrificed in the design stage of the ship, some ability to gain a better speed rating may be achievable. The high capabilities of the ship calls for a full crew, and often a full defensive. (Otherwise, what would be the point? A brig full of treasure and no cannons to guard it from being looted?)
  • Speed *
  • Capacity *****
  • Crew Required ****(*)
  • Handling ***
  • Defenses ***(*)
Example ships: The Storm Chaser, Cirrus' ship

lux icon Luxury Ships


Luxury ships are usually designed to the specifications of the purchaser. If they wanted to see the world, spend weekends fishing with their cohorts, or run a business out of their vessel, they design the specs accordingly. But since their first mandate is luxury, more often than not there will be uncommon additions that would throw off more efficient or orthodox designs, sacrificing one parameter or another in the process.
  • Speed *(***)
  • Capacity **(**)
  • Crew Required *(***)
  • Handling **(*)
  • Defenses *(*)
Example ships: The Scarlet Skye, Crim's ship; The Monarch, Rex's ship

milt icon Military Ships


Many a style of ship will qualify as Military, but it is worth noting that there will be NO room for luxury on a Military vessel, and EVERYTHING will be set to maximum efficiently according to its purpose – be that as a speedy scout, or a ship of war.
  • Speed *(****)
  • Capacity **(***)
  • Crew Required **(***)
  • Handling **(**)
  • Defenses **(**)
Example ships: The Herald, Solas' ship.

merch icon Merchant Ships


Most of these vessels aren’t built to do long runs. They’re made to do short jumps from one city to another, to accomplish the coming and going of their goods.
  • Speed **(*)
  • Capacity **(*)
  • Crew Required **(*)
  • Handling *(*)
  • Defenses *(*)
Example ships: The Golden Goose, Cyrus's ship

trans icon Transport Ships


Vessels specifically built to ferry passengers or cargo from one place to another are not common, but some companies DO exist who finance them. They’re costly, usually, due to the need for security as well as the need to MAKE money in the process of work.
  • Speed *(*)
  • Capacity ***(**)
  • Crew Required ***(**)
  • Handling *(**)
  • Defenses **(*)
Example ships: The Sky Scraper, a ship Diot, a merchant frequents
