The Pyra.

An artefact of great power, whos pointed edge shape makes the vessel a fun ship for ramming.

My suggestion!

Based of the design of the pyra and some goodies I have seen in Dev App I has a suggestion!

A ship, much like a pyra,

Pointed front.

two side guns with enough arc to look forward and to the sides a bit.

the difference.

Size! the vessel shall be smaller than a pyra, faster yet the front of the ship will be more durable.

a ram from the front will cause great damage to enemies.

being ramed form the sides and back will be an issue.

Speed? That can be arranged using 4 engines, much like a squid... on steriods..

the balloon? well, that will be an interesting proposition... how about a catamaran?

a purpose build ramming squid... thing... on steriods... with a pointy face.!!!


we shall call the ship. "The Mann ship" *Evil Laugh of evil"

Your thoughts mortals?

the ship name is available for improvement.

The ship could actually have the helm in the middle and the guns on the side balloons.

what if the ship had a seperate component, the beak, that would be repairable and rebuild-able just like teh hull and was damaged extra like teh hull by peircing, but was not part of the armor. the purpose would be for ramming, so that your armor wouldnt be damaged as much from the manouver. the pyra would also probably have one as well. thsi way you coudl have a decent rammign boat with very little armor, makign it useful in that role, but vulnerable to attack all the same
