Villagrn'n Ballista

The Villagr'n Ballista was developed by Alchemists, Mages and GearMasters working together under the instruction of the Military Forces of the Barony of Daroon. It's purpose is to provide a means of attack other balloon ships at a distance.

Basically it's a giant crossbow that has been modified to fit within the hold of a Balloon Ship and fire out the sides. It fires a sticky flaming tarball that spreads flaming goop upon impact. In general, it is used to set fire to the balloons or to the deck of a balloon ship.

It has a fairly menial range (about 300 yards) and therefore requires the two ships to get within close proximity. Essentially if you can hit someone with the Villagr'n then you're also in longbow range.
