Introduction: Armour Plating
The ship sailed with its hull plated in iron. The Warrior looked at the Captain but said nothing. “You’ll be happy about the iron hull once we reach the reefs.” It sounded like a sound idea. After all, she was wearing thick plates of armour herself as protection so she could hardly complain about the effectiveness. The following day the Sun shone in a clear sky. The good news was that it was fine weather to sail. The bad ones were the lack of wind and the heat which didn’t do any favours to the water reserves.
They advanced what they could while leaving a thin red trail in the ocean. In the night, the Warrior had an unsettling dream. She woke up and went up to deck and found a heavy sky of dark clouds. In the distance, lightning flashed as clouds crashed into each other. The old helmsman looked at her and smiled with what teeth remained in his mouth: “This won’t be fine weather for long, lady. Better go below deck and hold onto something. I’ll be tying myself to the helm, first thing!” He laughed an old, rough laugh.
The morning didn’t look like any of its kind. It was dark and it rained steadily. From time to time the world shook under the might of thunder. The Warrior left her metal armour and instead choose her backup: leather armour. It wasn’t as heavy and sturdy but at least it helped keep her dry. The helmsman smiled again, a rope was visible around his waist leading towards the helm. Lightning stroke the waters again. It spread and, through proximity, it reached the iron plating. Fortunately, the ocean took the brunt of the attack. “This old Miss has resisted its fair share of shake ups, lady.” She looked over the gunwale at the partially melted iron and felt glad she didn’t choose to plate herself this time.
