October 7 - NaNoWriMo Air ships

The Air Sailor Monastery is a very traditional and secretive sect. The practioners oversee the construction of a regular ship in dry dock by the cottage shipwrights with the addition of specially placed shrine rooms along the hull of the ship. Once the ship is completed, the monks arrive and bless and install runic shrines into the ship. These runic shrines cause the ship to float approximately 50 feet off the ground. The monks than pilot the ships like a typical sail boat, except they have mastered the use of wind in the higher altitude regions. This is a trained skill the monks study for many years. 

The air ships are the best way of transporting goods and people through the mountainous regions of the country.
