The Alphabet Of Arcane Trades: S is for...

Shipwright

I often talk of the part-pirate heart beating in my chest, and so it's little wonder that I again turn to the ocean for another arcane trade. Perhaps not-so arcane, however, as I still look to shipwrights for inspiration and collaboration in some of my venue fit-outs. A profession that dates back to before recorded history, shipwrights of the past were based out of shipyards. I love to imagine the knowledge that these traders possess, of such things as buoyancy, the importance of watertightness, rivets, patching, sails and tidal variations. I also imagine that they would perpetually live with sea legs. Ahoy!
