The Ivory Land Barge is one of the long range weapons used by my medieval faction called The Turbinators.
The Ivory land barge is the primary mode of transport for Kismet the son of Sultan Selbrik. It uses a 6" ballista as the primary weapon. But also has brutally modified tusks and a mask of razor sharp ivory blades.
The Bull elephant it is built on is Melmut, he was captured and raised by Brakle and Stanngie, who ride on the back and perform loading duties for the Ballista. Melmut is intelligent and very tough, he has been abused since birth, and if he becomes freed from his captures NO ONE will be safe. He has had his ears remove and replaced with hearing cones. He lost his trunk in a failed escape about a decade ago. He is the strongest and toughest off all the elephants in the fleet.
Kismet is a highly intelligent warlord, and the one that constructed the Ivory Land Barge. Kismet also has studied under the sorcerer Rickotl, and has almost mastered most types of magik.
Brakle and Stanngie also have studied under the sorcerer Rickotl and are moving up the ranks as sorcerers. The keep Melmut in line and help protect Kismet.
