Sailing ships were introduced to Bal-Kriav in the Creation War. In this epic conflict between gods and primordials, the opposing sides used ships to transport war materials and troops across great inland seas and vast oceans. In the Dawn Era, navigation was learned by those mortals that worked alongside the major factions of that period. By the start of the God Era, navigating by the stars had largely been replaced with the use of compasses.
Red skies at night, sailors delight, red skies in the morning, sailor take warning.
