Flying ShipsThere are magical flying ships in the world. Magic is very common. One of the common transportation magics is a gravity-defier. The core of a magic fying ship is the large imbued metal bottom of the ship. There are rune rods that can be adjusted for the angle, ascent, and decent. The ship fly above clouds, which works out well because the world is mostly overcast, more often than not. (about as often as London) The gravity-defier system can boost the ships very high above water to reach the clouds.
The more expensive and complicated gravity-defiers allow ships to lean farther and maneuver better. Propellers and sails move the ships. Some ships use more magic and others less. A ship might have a magic heat exchanger or it might have a coal hold for steam power. The props are small, but they are also magically imbued for speed. Most are mounted in the rear of the vessels.
One of the common kinds of places in the world to be inhabited is on mountain peaks, well above the clouds. Works great for the airships and defending.
