FANTASY FRIDAY XL
Human and Orcish Ships

Hello everyone!
So you're probably wondering why this Fantasy Friday is on a Saturday. I really tried all day to get it up earlier, but my PC crashed and I wasn't able to get it repaired in time and wasn't having any luck with Windows on my Mac - more info in the RSP thread. But anyways, I hope you accept my apologies and enjoy today's FF nonetheless. :) I'm still without a PC, but I'd like to promise you a better showcase as soon as I get back in the game.

For now, we'll be taking a look at some concept pieces for the orc and human ships. And then, once I get everything worked out, we'll add to this showcase with some brand new screenshots of these babies in-game along with, hopefully, the Elven Male Kraken, if he's done in time.

We only have one human ship concept to show off as we've had the other human ships in-game for several years now, but we'll show you them all together soon.

If you haven't already, be sure to check out the Elven Fleet (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1558). And thanks a million to Josh Warner, who took the screenshot in the opening banner. :)

The human 'Ship of the Line' is the largest ship on game, able to hold a great number of trebuchets and units to dominate the seas.

The Bireme is the largest of the Orcish ships, and is ideal for large armies with catapults and other large units.

The Rowboat is the standard Orcish ship available at all of Gokkholm's harbour towns. Nothing fancy, just an affordable, well-rounded ship.

With the most primitive of designs, the Goblin Privateer is a small and cheap ship favored by early-game players who are just starting their navies. However, they are easily preyed on by larger ships and krakens when traveling alone.

I assume boarding and sniping will both be effective practices? I can't wait to board yarg!

I'm not sure if ramming will be implemented, but you can pull up and board enemy ships if you want to make it a melee battle.

Your game wallet won't stand a chance against a fleet of those behemoths either. :p

Seems awesome, but..... Is the ship of the line bigger than the ancient kraken? And can it best the beast in combat?

Hopefully there will be quests that enable the skulls on the front of the ships to be changed even if there were a,b,c variants that were the same except for the skulls.

While there will be no ship customization, we do hope to implement hero customization which we will reveal more on once the project gets underway. :)

I'm curious to find out how much ships are actually used. And how they balance out. Will everyone want a city next to the water? or is it more a liability because you'll have to defend from two different types of attacks?

I can imagine people next to the water will get destroyed by someone who isn't and has instead been using 100% of his resources on a ground army. Will we be able to use navy to defend our cities effectively?

Can you actually load troops on the ships? Or does the ship come manned?
