CT!: The Tides of Trineus
Those who disbelieve that the barbaric Skorne abstain from high seas travel have not yet encountered Tugboat; colloquially named by those who have seen it. An oversized pleasure barge, refitted with sails, the main locomotion by Tugboat is through the many enslaved beasts who actually drag it through the waves. These creatures are driven past exhaustion and physical limits by the torturous ministrations of the crew in order to catch even the swiftest ships.
Crewed by vicious warriors of the empire, no quarter is offered or requested. Death is the only terms offered for Tugboat's foes, and in Western Immoren the Skorne have no allies.
