As a gift to the library of Kaiku, the Xronians built a special Clock for Index.
It has quite the number of hands, one of them turning in reverse. There’s also a clepsydra dripping upward, many wonderfully engraved gears and a crystal pendulum. Index complains a bit about the eerie green light at night but he recognize this piece of art is a very useful tool of exquisite craftsmanship.
En gage d’amitié, le peuple Xroniens a conçu pour la bibliothèque de Kaiku une bien étrange horloge.
Elle a un nombre important d’aiguilles, dont certaines tournent dans l’autre sens. Une clepsydre s’écoulant vers le haut en orne le sommet. Les multiples jours laissent apercevoir des rouages finements gravés de runes tandis qu’un pendule de cristal bat la mesure. Pépé Index se plaint un peu que l’étrange lumière verte qui en émane l’empêche de dormir mais il reconnait volontiers que cette merveille d’horlogerie est bien utile et est le produit du summum d’un artisanat d’une exquise finesse.
The Airships of the dragonian Kingdom have no balloons, nor propellers. They are made from the finest and rarest windwood, They tends to be quite small, and fins, propelled by wind kamis summoned by wind users. The Fumetsu no Kirofune is quite the exception. It’s massive, immense, imposing. He is not propelled by regular wind kamis, but by the power of the Dark Koki.
No airship car rival its speeds and power when cruising the sea of cloud under the two blood moons.
Vauban is one of the most fortified place of the Merchant Empire, except of Course Trokenheim. The island is pierced with tunnels, leading to the fortifications underneath. Two stationary gunships floats high above the walls, armed with several dozen of canons.
This place is as the proverb goes : “Qui s’y frotte, s’y pique”.
The Manowar of the Imperial fleet parade today above Trokenheim. Woe is upon whoever dare to provoke this majestic airship, for its gunners are reputed not only for their numbers, but foremost for their dreaded precision.
Heavy and filled with loot, the zeppelin had troubles returning home. Winds were treacherous this morning, and they only got two gunships as support. The heavy load makes every maneuver risky. The merchants are very cautious people, and will not celebrate victory until they reach a safe harbor.
