The Grand Gizmo

"Momma, Momma, can we go to the docks to see what the Gizmo has brought?"
"Finish you chores and then we will go."
--Conversation between a little boy and his mother the day the Grand Gizmo came to their port
  The Grand Gizmo sails from The Fearsome Enclave and to a few ports on the mainland. The ship is filled with all kinds of wonderous gadgets. There is nothing like them produced anywhere else in the world. The technology produced by the gnomes is highly saught after and it is always a happy day when the Gizmo arrives in port. Children run to the docks to see what the gnomes bring because they are the best toy makers anywhere.

Power Generation

The Gizmo has steam-powered bellows and a valve system to power hydrojets. It also uses wind power via its sails.


Gizmo uses hydrojets to suck water in and shoot it out to propel it forward. The system works in reverse as well to move backward. Adjustable fins and smaller jets on each side control the direction of the ship. Also, sails on its three masts are used to power and direct the ship.
