Here is a down and dirty layout of the Onyx Key. Please note the descriptors are what the areas are generally used for and can be repurposed as the new owners see fit. Well, within limits anyhow.

This looks based off of the Caravel in stormwrack - am I to assume it can handle 120 tons of cargo then (60 without hindrance to speed?)

Tangaroa,

The stats of the ship were offered in another post, but here is the quick and dirty. Please note that the specifics are actually compiled from a variety of sources, both Pathfinder and real world Smile

Type: Caravel
Dimensions: 70ft long x 20ft wide
Tonnage: ~140 tons
Number of Masts: 3
Speed: 3mph (at x1 wind speed multiple)
Armament: None
Minimum Crew: 7
Max Capacity: 30

As for the speed, according to what I'm finding in the Pathfinder material, speed is unaffected by the tonnage carried. Rather, it depends more on the number of crew and also the amount of wind there is to fill the sails. If you find a notation in the Pathfinder material I've overlooked, please let me know.

Umm.. okay. Not sure why you need this. But, okay...

The tonnage and dimensions come from a book called "Ship: The Epic Story of Maritime Adventure." The rest of the stats are conglomeration of materials from The Core Rulebook, The Gamemastery Guide, Stormwrack, The Arms and Equipment Guide and various online sources, I can't remember everything I've read. I've tried to use information in these mechanics which correspond to the ship type and size.

The ships speed is mentioned in Stormwrack but I can't find anything in the Core Rulebook or elsewhere in the materials for Pathfinder. Since I'm leaning toward the narrative description of sea traveling, I'm using the movement offered in the Core Rulebook.
