The sea tyger

The Sea Tyger is a praho and it is the admiral vessel of the pirate fleet of The Saynue's Tiger, current Saynue's scourge.

Propulsion

The Sea Tyger, as all the proas, is a sail vessel equipped with a tanjong rig. Thanks to her small dimensions and lightweight, she capable to outrun and outmaneuver bigger and more dangerous ship. The great knowledge of the enviroment of her crew completes the legend of this ship, reknowned in every harbour of Phaldorya.

Weapons & Armament

Most of the time the "Sea Tyger" travels without a lot of weaponry on board, as it would increase the weight and reducing the chanches to outrun swift enemies. The more important weapon on this ship are the members of the crew, totally devoted to their leader and selected between the most bloodthirsty pirates of the whole Saynué, even equipped only with rapiers and knives they will fight until their last breath.

Armor and defense

The legend wants that the deck of the ship is reinforced with scales of a blue dragon, although this is not true the sailors like to diffuse this story to increase the legendary aura of the "Sea Tyger". The high maneuvrability, the great knowledge of the wind and enviroment and the skillful use of her lightweight to perform narrow maneuvers close to the shoals, that have sunken many ship in the Saynue are the main defenses of this vessel.

Communication Tools & Systems

The Tyger communicates with the other vessels of the fleet using a code trasmitted using drums. When the distance is excessive or there are noises that would make the drums useless, this system is substituted by mirrors either using lamps or the sun as a source of light.

Yes, but momentum is important when you trying to learn some new skill and I should be trying to do something every day...

I love the ways they communicate on the ship/to other ships. Sounds like a ship you don't want to cross.

They can appear pretty innocent when they want to. So it is hard to escape them when they are in disguise!

I wanted to collect funny aspects from real life to mix with the atmosphere of Phaldorya to have some old wives' stories that consolidate the background of the world.

Nice article. So it's a whole pirate fleet rather than a lone ship? Do the other stay similarly light or do they have more weapons? (I presume there are cannons in your world and that's what you're referring).   Do they maybe paint the deck to make it blue and increase the spread of the legend?

To see what I am up to, here is my civilisation challenge article.

Yes, they have cannons and the set-up is variable according to the missions they have to complete, so occasionally even the Tyger can travel with a significant load. The idea of painting the deck blue, it is a nice touch that I will probably use!
