Diadem of the Sea. The aft of this vessel and each side of the prow are marked proudly in etched wooden script with this name in a bright white tone framed in a regal blue. It is a proud name for a noteworthy vessel. While it is not tonned as a true warship, its fully rigged sails and three decks make it worthy of the title 'frigate' and prize well worth the taking. It has three masts, a slightly raised forecastle, and a truly cabin sized poop deck. The midships bears a large double hatch between the fore and mizzen sail which no doubt leads to the cargo deck. The upper deck, open to the air, is professionally ordered as one might expect from a crew with a military efficiency. Indeed, it shows no less than four small balistae on pins, two fore and two aft. It makes for a prickly prize indeed should one desire it. The second deck is visible by virtue of portholes and the occasional hatch along the side of the vessel. As with any ship built with cost being little object, the framing of these is solidly built and noted from the occasional open hatch. The figurehead of the vessel is your classic gownclad female save that the lower portion of her gown becomes waves and her arms stretch out before her to the bowsprit and bear a sparkling diadem. Are they real gems?
This ship is manned at all times and the crew look every bit the sort of fighting man you'd expect to have on such an ordered vessel.
