I am in need of new weaponry and defenses for Strayway! There are many choices. I come to you, O monsters, for stylistic and tactical advice. (I do not consider myself honor-bound to take the advice, but if it's sensible and not too inconvenient, I probably will.)
Since this is a free-form poll, limited mainly by the imagination, I will run a second-round poll for voting on some of my favorite and more plausible answers.
I want the skyboat protected by summoned elementals, along the lines of my faithful seven-winged burning thing. What sort of elemental would you recomend?
I want a major weapon, capable of distressing the boats of sky pirates, giant flying monsters, and other annoyances. What would you recommend for it?
And I would like a few minor weapons, suitable for use against invaders, overly aggresive salesmen, religious conversionaries, and other such intruders. Probably the elementals mentioned above will be one of these; what should the others be?
I want a major defense, capable of protecting Strayway. (I want to make the equivalent of city walls for her, but that will take a while.) What would you recommend?
Which of these should I take particular effort to guard Strayway against?
