Design and Construction
The S.S. Specter was ordered by the North Seas Navy in the Final years of the 5th Age. Originaly named the N.S.F. Jatizso, the ship was the second of 4 new "armored" warships. Concept of this ship began as a joint venture by Avery Enterprises,The North Seas Empire, and Jatizso Ship Building Company. The "Gunnar Class" was designed around the new Avery Enterprises Stream Engine. The thought being the stream drivin ship might be able to move the heavey armored ship that sails could not. The armor giving the ship superior defence against other warships od larger size.The keel was laid in Jatizso Shipyards under the supervission of House Nin and Avery Enterprises. The ship took 8 months to finish and another 3 months to outfit and launch.
North Seas Empire/Kandarin Service
The ship was the second of her class to enter service. These ships lead the combined Jatizso/Neitiznot fleets against the Rovin Navy at the battle of Rellekka. The Jatizso with her sister ship, Miscellenia, ingaged the Rovin Carriers sinking one and heavely damaging the others. The Jatizso fleets suffered heavey losses. The Jatizso and Miscellania suffred only minor dmamge, proving their armor is indeed afective.
After the collapse of the North Seas Empire, the ships were returned to Avery Enterprises. The other 2 ships were finished on time and sent to Keldigram Docks to await purchases. Brock Avery added theships to the Kandarin Navy when he became King. They served through the reign of Brock and Vectis.
Eventually Atreyu Cruor was able to acquire the Jatizso which had been renamed the Specter. Atreyu readied the ship for a journey to the Wushinko Ilses, a voyage that few western ships have ever made.
