Sailing

Life and death can be found on the sea. The difference lies in the hands of those who sail it. Sailing and seamanship have a rich history in Fayador. Not only is the Western Sea a busy trade route, but countless rivers and tributaries flow through the valleys of the realm. Knowledge of maneuvering ships and determining seaworthy weather can be important if not invaluable in traveling the length of the land.
