You can blame Porky for this.
His comment on my second round of nautical queries (yes, we like it naughty here, Kent) earlier appealed to my democratic side (read “lazy”): “Re: ship design I'd suggest floating mortars, gondolas mounted on the backs of sea monsters, rotting hulks and paddle wheels, and maybe balloons or caravans of the air on flying creatures. You know, another way to go with this would be setting us a challenge as with the game naming. We can fill up the comments with all kinds of ideas and you can sift out the good stuff.”
Fair enough, my porcine friend.
Here's this week contest:
- Name and describe one fantastic nautical vessel. The weirder and more wonderful the better.
- Name and describe an exotic port of call or locale.
- Name and describe a maritime culture/or race.
You can enter in any or all of the categories. Winners to be announced this coming weekend—provided my deserted island refuge is rigged out with a source to the ether. Bonus points for statting out an entry for classic D&D editions.
Prizes to be announced then, but most likely your choice of an appropriate nautically-themed book from my ever-expanding collection.
But wait you say, what about that Domain Game naming contest?
By executive fiat, I have decided to postpone the results until Wednesday July 20th. If you want to get your own entry—and make your mark on the project—mosey over to this post and make an entry.
