Last and Final Refuge
The Docks are home to three sailing ships and one in construction. The ships were former trading vessels that have been converted into warships for patrol and protection of the harbor area. The harbor is regularly patrolled by at least one of these ships at any time. Additionally, hydraulic gates shut off the harbor from ship-borne invasion.
The ship under construction by a former elvish sea lord is designed to be a long distance scout ship, usable by the fortress to scout new lands and to provide adventurers with passage to distant shores.
Additionally, a small contigent of fishing boats supply the town with fresh catch weekly, under the watchful eye of a patrol ship.
