Duxon Deftblade, Swordsmith and More (Petrichor 365)

7 March, 2023

The Deftblade family, of the Topaz Gemkine, has had its share of venturers and heroes.  So, when young Duxon announced his intention to head to Petrichor to seek his fortune it was not much remarked on, even as he packed up as much of his mother’s workshop as he could with him.  For the fortune he intends to make is selling venturers fine swords, not risking his own life in the wilderness.

Voddick took a drink.  “My mother taught me never to fight fair with drunks and liars,” he said with a grin.

To the sea in shipsHer Draconic Majestry’s Ship Flying Cobra is a patrol frigate based out of Port Imperial.  It is part of the slowly expanding Imperial naval forces assigned to Petrichor under Commodore Pharos to watch over the coasts and monitor the comings and goings of ships and people.

The Flying Cobra is a three-masted frigate starship made of jade-green Octolia wood and the masts are ivory-white snow pine.  She is of a recent design, sleek and dangerous, equipped with magical bolt throwers and enchanted defenses.  The Flying Cobra is about as fast and maneuverable as any starship of her size can be.
