Build Custom Airships Out Of Anything In Windforge

snowed in studiosAs a denizen of the airborne world of Cordeus, you travel places by way of airships you build entirely from scratch. This means building a deck with whatever you can find-wood, metal, rocks or even giant animal corpses-adding engines and propellers and taking to the skies in your own custom-built vessel.
