Elemental Airship of Arcanis, 'The Aria'

An ornate Elemental Airship that speaks to an age long gone by; it’s crafted of a shining silver metal that reminds them of what they’ve read of Arcanis.


Made of a combination of metal and wood, the Aria is powered by the bound elemental within. It’s unique enclosed design allows air-breathing creatures to survive comfortably in hostile environments, such as vacuum, water, and noxious vapor.

Should this dome either be opened (via Gloves of Control or button on the dash) or destroyed (AC 2, Hardness 7, HP 359), this quality is lost.
