Patrick Vehicle in Pronathea | World Anvil


Known simply as "Patrick", this Salamander-class vessel created by Messen Oak is famous for being the smoothest and most enjoyable ship in the Eight Lands.   Proudly bearing its signature colouration of blue exterior timbers with a red-gold trim, Patrick sails to every corner of the known world, through the Wayward Waters, alongside the Intrepid Isles, and crests the waves of the Endless Ocean.   Crewed by some of the finest sailors and fighters in the Eight Lands, Patrick is also one of the safest ships to be aboard.  


Made from the finest of timbers available from Leighia, and sealed with Sovereign Glue, Patrick is the epitome of seafaring vessels.   Patrick has four lower decks and one upper deck. The lowest deck serves as watertight chambers, with the deck directly above it serving as cargo space. The second of the lower decks are for crew bunks, as well as food and water storage.   The first of the lower decks is where the passenger quarters are. These quarters are simply organised as five rooms per side, with a communal lounge and bar area near the bow. Each room is lavishly decorated, and, if possible, hold creature comforts of the individual passenger. These comforts might simply be a specifically stuffed pillow or a bottle of their favourite perfume available to them.   The single upper deck is a viewing and navigational area, with the space between it and the main deck occupied by the captain's quarters.   Whilst Patrick is capable of fighting against encroaching pirates and marauders, however, it is not heavily armed, carrying only eighteen cannons stowed on the second of the lower decks. In its time sailing across the waters of the Eight Lands, Patrick has only been attempted to be assaulted twice, both by amateur pirates who did not anticipate the fighting skill of the crew.

"hold creature comforts [of] the individual passenger."   I really like the character this article has. You can tell it is unique its world. The writing was easy to follow as well. Very nice. The art complemented the feel of it nicely. Well done.

Hey Theiket! I guess it is so short because of summer camp, right? For something that describes the positions of rooms relative to another, I would have wished for a map, even a scribbled one. But besides that, I like what you wrote. Patrick is actually just a "normal" ship, as in "there are ships like that in our world as well", isn't it?

It's also short because I have little to no idea about what I'm talking about when it comes to boats :D And yes, Patrick is a normal ship. Just fancy.

I almost flipped my lid when I read "sealed with sovereign glue! xD awesome, man, pure awesome. Details like that really get me.   Also, the ship is just called "Patrick", mundane names on clearly not mundane things are my jam! The ship sounds classy, ostentatious, but not overly so, and reliable. I would note that you have a rare case of the sidebar being longer than the main article, which, still, isn't optimal visually. You could fill up the main article with a nice in-world quote, or with a broad image, possibly of one of the interior rooms of the ship ^-^   Both Messen Oak and the TTC do not provide tooltips when hovered over. Do they not have excerpts or is it due to them being linked via the preset dropdowns? If the latter is the case, I'd consider inserting them manually using the @ mention system to make full use of the free tooltips :3

Preset dropdowns :D   Patrick is a good ship.
