Bryndķs is right. Lady of the armour, or, more poetically, perhaps, elfin lady of the armour.

I am defitly not an expert in ships BUT, as a brazilan, I can grant you that in PORTUGUESE "ĆO" is ALWAYS a sufix used to refer to a bigger thing. So I dont think that there is a minimal chance that a "Caravelćo" were smaller than a "Caravel". But people tend to give strange and much times no sense names ... And also the portuguese of portugal from 15-16 century may be "alien" to me.

I was wondering how you arrived at your stats for the TL4 sailing ships.
Particularly:
HND/SR, Move, Occ., Cost, Loc., and, Draft.

I have a spreadsheet that I am working on to build ships for my Savage Tide campaign.

Thanks.

Fantasy might be an unexpected source for TL4 sailing ships and even their cannons.

As I recall - and remember that it's been years, even before Low-Tech came out - Icelander was using archeological finds and re-creation models to get these stats.

Hnd/SR is probably a guestimate.
