Ships are the primary method in which Pirates navigate the Skyways and Stormgates to travel around the Spiral.There are Enemy Ships, NPC Ships, and Equip-able Ships that your pirate and crew use to traverse the skyways. Both Enemy and NPC Ships can have Creatures that you may encounter if boarding occurs. Most Enemy Ships will attack in you in Broadside Combat, but some only board you to attack you on deck. Confronting Ships and Creatures is one of the major challenges your pirate will face in the game, but happily you get rewards from them in the way of Drops. Ships drop gold and Ship Equipment, while the creatures aboard drop gold and various personal equipment for your pirate, including the rare pet.
