I don't read any mention of these being flying ships of any sort. The line open-air gallies seems to indicate an open top ship rather akin to the Viking longship, as opposed to a closed in ship with a deck...rather than an actualy flying ship. Go to Comment
Good luck getting close enough to do so :). The winds are hurricane force and debris could smack you necromancer before getting close enough. The souls are also damaged and individually incoherent, the effects of the Soul Rending wands used against them. Go to Comment
It could be limited by powerful, probably artifical, weather conditions. The strength of this composite being is such that conditions which normally control hurricane movement (water temprature for one) do not have a great effect. It will not stray too far inland, but since so much of humanity generally lives on the sea, this still provides ample opportunity for destruction. Go to Comment
I did not mention sky ships - it was a pure blue-water battle.
and yes, the Aldruku ships are a minor variant on a longboat. They were a lower tech level then the Nyoran fleet - more tribal vs the greek/romanesque.
And to be honest, I had more fun writing the naval battle over the storm. Think I'll need to add toit sometime. Sigh. I keep saying that :)
Even so, they might be chained to the cycles of the weather, able only to manifest when the conditions are right: Dissipating when the storm's energy is spent, then reforming to again ravage the land in search of their ancient enemies, accursed and unable to rest until they have taken the soul from the last of their people's foes.
I just added my Armor of the Last Stand to this scrollycodexamajig. Too bad I didnt submit it in time for the War is Coming Quest. Anyway, I love this codexamascrollizzle. So... Submit more to it. Go to Comment
All in all, a codex for war creations seems obvious, yet never done before. Most of these I can see finding use in various places. I rather like it. Nice work on each of the ideas. Those four scroll items are themselves a nice piece of work. More would be nice. Go to Comment
