Land of Legends
A Brigantine is a vessel with two masts, only the forward of which is square rigged. Originally the brigantine was a small ship carrying both oars and sails. It was the of many Third Age pirates. Eventually it developed into a design from the Caravel and Nau, combining the sails on both types into a single small ship. Though is still small enough it could be rowed if needed and has a waterline much lower than either of those ships and more like a galley. While not as capable an ocean going vessel as either of it’s originators, it can be used as such if needed. This gives it a much further reach then most other vessels.
