Shipwright-Buddy.pngShipwright says... The Raider is perfect for the aspiring Hallengard warrior. Also good for ab workouts. Has no sails. Requires at least 2 rowers to row effectively.


The Raider provides a unique playstyle that completely ignores the wind penalty most ships have to deal with, allowing for a fast speed in any direction no matter the added bonus of having a disciplined crew. When fully-crewed with well-coordinated paddlers, it has the potential to be the fastest and most maneuverable ship in the game. Its high crew requirement also makes it an excellent boarding ship, and combined with its decent cargo storage and meager cannons at the bow of the ship, it is ideally used for quick cargo raids. Although, because of the shallow positioning of the paddlers, it is a hazardous and vulnerable ship to be on if it's fired upon. Similarly to other paddle boats, due to its fast turn speed and requirement for coordination it can spin out of control if the paddlers are not careful enough with their coordination.

With a skilled crew and an adequate amount of people it can prove to be a very effective ship in the proper situation.

Trivia

The Raider can only be used by Hallengard Navy in lore battles.

An "Advanced Raider" exists, but very few people own one. The Advanced Raider has dyeable shields mounted on the side, larger cannons, two extra rower positions, two swivel mounts, and a radio.

The ship itself and its exclusive variant are both inspired from Viking Longships.
