Inktober 2019 Day 19: Sling

Today's Prompt:

A helpful item for the infirm and the maimed. A vernacular phrase derived from the common language. In their titular story David slew Goliath with his sling, cementing his position as the epitomical underdog. Sometimes a sling is just an object, and sometimes it’s the maker of legends. What is it to your world?

Here are some recommended templates to get you started, but they are only suggestions, not requirements!

A couple small updates for this one (a secret and made a few corrections). Sling reference is in the clickable secret. (I try to make them super easy to find so it's fast and fun.)

With the once high costs to make healing potions, the Artalgnian Empire created a cheap alternative for its subjects in Arcanopia. Its healing effects are questionable, causing vertigo and dormancy. Still, the "kneeling potion" is sold today in Archana as a common sling.

Overall airships, before I break it down into any available types. Was feeling bad it was a stub, but a stub is all I needed for this one really.

Airships are stable and classy vehicles of travel, for both passengers and cargo.
