Sky-Boats were used by the ancient Nehekharans. Made from modified river boats, a large bladder of canvas was used to trap air spirits that lifted the ship up. [1a] Maintained by the priesthood of Tahoth, the centre of their construction was Lybaras. They were stable enough to carry entire companies of soldiers, as well as cargo, and archers could unleash hails of arrows from them on unsuspecting enemy troops below. [1a] Production ceased after the devastating wars against Nagash and his followers.
