Syrik's Drunken Sailing
Protected from enemy fire by solid iron plate, the ironclad is slow and clumsy but deadly in a naval battle. The ironclad is built on a frame of thick wooden timbers, just like most other vessels; armor is then riveted or bolted onto its sides. Most ironclads are built by seafaring dwarves who turn their remarkable knack for metallurgy and engineering to the construction of these warships.
An ironclad was a steam-propelled warship in the early part of the second half of the 4th century G.C, protected by iron or steel armor plates. The ironclad was developed as a result of the vulnerability of wooden warships to explosive or incendiary shells. The first ironclad battleship, Thrung, is currently in the works by the Dwarves of Khaez-Au-Ducon.
