When Heward's Stalwarts need to travel the lake, their mode of choice is The Thunderbird, a massive modified elven catamaran capable of carrying 35 people and comfortably sleeping 20 below decks. The ship is a brilliant red in color and is armed with two lightning projectors, a host of harpoon guns, and an Orb of Concealment that can render the whole ship silent and invisble, making it detectable only by the tracks of water left in its wake. The ship isn't the fastest on the lake due its size, but it's up there, and its dragonskin sails are resistant to tearing or other breakage. The Thunderbird is berthed at Heward's Hall on Isle Royale.
