"Mardwyn Skillful, the chief gnomish ship designer, let me in on some confidential information about Carravs. They are to be the first military vessel of the monster fleet. Moreover, apart from the triangular sail, the vessel has other advantages over similar boats of other races. For example, its stem-post is bound with tempered steel, and its keel is more durable than that of a Corg. Mardwyn made it clear that once on a Carrav, you can rest assured that no floating trash, logs or life-rafts will be of any significant danger to the hull." - From "Brave Seadogs," a series of articles by the noble werewolf Wolfus de Crunch.
