Dromond (Warship)

The dromond is a medium-sized galley that is fast, nimble, and eminently suitable for warfare. It has two masts and sails better than it rows with any kind of favorable wind. It is fully decked, and the rowers are covered from attack. The dromond usually has a small deckhouse or fighting platform at the stern. The dromond is the most advanced galley design, and not many seafaring folk have the expertise and skills to build a dromond.
The warship mentioned under Transport in Chapter 7 of the Player’s Handbook is a dromond.
