Sky High Tavern

The Sky High Tavern is a modified Wether Summit airship built by Conzania. It serves as a luxury tavern in the sky.
I remember the first time seeing the Sky High Tavern. I really wanted to eat there. Obviously it was out of my league at the time, but now, I have dined there and it was amazing. The food is to die for and Gwern Pumphrey made me feel welcome.

Power onboard is generated through 4 aserions that also provides propulsion for the ship.

Propulsion

A ship core in the bottom of the ship lowers the weight of the ship up to 0, allowing it to sail through the air. For extra speed, aserions are placed in the engine room. These aserions power propellers on both side, which can rotate 180 degrees to brake or even go backwards.

That map already looks awesome. Can't wait to see the written content.

You're in luck, I just finished the first draft of the written content :)

Oh nice. I do see a few imbalances between headers and text, where I'd either expand or leave out a few brief sections. Hm... Can you put the menu in an aloud box, perhaps? That'd help with visually breaking up the article to make it a bit less a wall of text. Maybe add horizontal lines between different parts of the menu too. I really like all the info btw, so no need to remove it, just slightly tweak the display.

The layout is always my worst enemy. It is indeed on my list to change. I however already implemented some of the suggestions. Thanks!

Right off the bat I love the descriptions of the menu of both food and drink and i love the map. Overall this article is fantastic!, Great job

While I'm left wanting a bit more of everything (except the menu, which sounds delicious), I am liking this already just for the awesomeness of having a tavern on an airship!

If you have some time, I would much appreciate your feedback on my entry for Adventure April: Carbon Copy Paradise

As a first draft, I feel like it has the rough outlines of what I want in the article, I will expand upon it later. Thanks for the feedback!

Steampunk!   That mentioned, I would love some extra babbling on some headlines - Maybe rumors, tavern songs or stuff like that! The technical details are awesome and paint a really vibrant picture of the ship!

When I first started with this article, some sections pleaded fore more information. However, your menu section is easily one of my favorite! As there is no "goblin soup" or anything truly out of fiction, it is so easy to picture these menu items. I'm a huge wine lover, so I will admit I spent a solid 10 minutes pairing wines with different entrée items and salad. Well done! Also, The font and style of the menu gave me a nostalgia flashback to the days I used to spend in runescape, resembling some of the quests and text there.

MAP! You did a phenomenal job on the layers (and layout!) of this airship tavern :D I'll have two Tiny Griffons and some rotisserie turkey--would a passenger/lodging guest be allowed to take that up to their room? Or order room service?


You are doing a great job! Keep creating; I believe in you!

Thanks for the comments all. I haven't really had much time to work on it after creating it, but I did add a bit of flavor text.

I nominate this airship inn for the next World Anvil cruise! I liked all the layers and details on the map.

Lutra lived in the Unilynn until its end, then her son Ardelis brought her to Etonia. She knows the story behind their home, The One River.

First of all I wanna say that I love the idea of an airship serving as a tavern, it's so cool!   The map is awesome and especially the detailled menu gave me the feeling like I was actually sitting in a tavern and reading the menu. Also the combination of machinery and magic seems like a cool idea, it is well balanced. I would have been really interested in some more details on the staff, like the captain or the cooks, though. Still, great work!
