Goblin war boats are long, bulky warships, designed for bombardment. They are decked out in cannons, and usually have a crew of 100-200. They are often made of oak, because of the Great Illronic forest. Their significance is in the Mür-onic War.

Characteristics.

The goblin war boats were massive warships, about 56.5 feet long and was built in a wedged shape. It had over one-hundred guns, which would fire almost anything. It had three masts, the center one being the tallest, and third being the shortest. The mast often had the symbol of eh Incorporated Guilds of Illronic, which is often associated with goblins. It had around forty quarters, each one being able to hold around five to ten men. Though the captain had a room to himself.

Metal plates were often common, holding the ship together. It was usually powered by wind, but if necessary would have oars built in, to move it.

Effectiveness

The warship was excellent for bombardment, and the cannons could almost fire anything. Meaning, when the other ships would fire at it, it would use the debris caused by their cannons, in their won cannons. Though, it was a very slow ship, and could not handle smaller, swifter ships as well. In battle, it would normally be accommodated by smaller cruisers, to protect it. In a poem by the goblin author, James Ethrous, it was described:

Fire rains from the heavens,

one-eyed Jack knows this is true.

His fleet will fade,

before the sky even turns blue.

As the moon highlights the cannon fire,

ships sink, even if they were new.

All because of one ship,

one ship, debris and metal is what it threw.

They city is hurt and so are his ships,

Jack wishes he knew what to do.
