What type of ship with medieval times tech and Magic (explanation follows later) can go underwater and ram other ships?
In my universe leviathans exist. Leviathans are basically giant sea monsters. Would it be possible for the leviathan to have a useless organ that you could empty and carve a path to? An extra useless lung for example, that you could build something in. If you did this: how do you steer the leviathan and see where you are going?
And how can you get air into the extra useless organ so that your crew won't suffocate? I don't really want to rely on Magic to make the air fresh again, and I don't want to have to surface every ten minutes.
Would it work for the leviathan to be able to have an organ that takes oxygen out of the water and put it in a spot that could be accessed by humans riding in this thing?
Explanation of Magic
Magic is a second life source. If you run out of it you die.
The less Magic you have the weaker you get. In this respect it is like a second stamina.
They way your body checks if it is physically strong enough to do something is as follows:
- It checks if your body has enough stamina and Magic
- The stamina is used up, but the Magic is not
When you use Magic that changes as follows:
- You don’t need stamina
Magic has two ways of doing something:
- on release
- on impact
If you were to light a few sticks of wood on fire and you wanted to do it with magic, you could:
- send out the Magic (still in Magic form) and when you hit the pile of sticks, you can turn the Magic into the fire
- Make a small flame that shoots toward the sticks and lights it on fire when it hits
Some spells can be both, but some are only on impact.
If you send a spell to paralyze your enemies (make them unable to move) there is no way, unless maybe send a spray of paralyzing poison toward them, to do it on release.
Everyone in this universe has Magic. Some people produce more Magic than others. This is the reason that few can do great feats of Magic, though if they knew how, almost anybody could conjure a candle-flame.
Another thing that you need to know about Magic is the use of it. Special words, the Olde Tongue, were linked to the usage usually, but not always. The words just helped you to focus and ‘stay on target’. These words helped magicians to focus on what they were doing and not get lost in the process.
So what I'm asking is would the leviathan thing work, and if not, what will.
