A Primitive Craft is a kind of vehicle or technological device, intended to convey sophonts from one location to another. It is also often referred to as primitive transportation.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Primitive craft are the staple transportation of TL:1-3 sophont societies.

Nautical environments are dominated by boats and waterbourne ships, while ground environments are typically dominated by riding beasts and various kinds of carts and wagons. Some worlds are even given to flight with various kinds of balloons, ridable flyer creatures, or unpowered gliders. A few even figure out how to use very early technology ornithopters.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

An Industrial Revolution typically hits most sophont societies during the technological epoch of TL:4-6 at which point, most riding and dray beasts become replaced by among the earliest mechanical vehicles, typically ground cars and other mechanical conveyances driven by an engine or power plant.
