No, something a little more external. Deanna pointed out it was very "string cutty" :lol: :lol:

That’s a feature not a bug! :)

That is a design flaw that is Not inherent to the concept.

Funny, that was the exact image Deanna shared for how to have a proper zeppelin aircraft carrier without it dangling precariously from guywires. :lol:

I got it from her months ago when I asked if the Nile SB could have a Zepellin Aircraft Carrier. She showed me this as something she used in Dystopian Wars.

It's the thing I'm most excited for about the Nile Empire!

I desperately want to have to sneak onboard to have to rescue someone or something. :D

Now imagine it becoming possessed like a giant, flying, Walking God

Unfortuantely I couldn't justify an art order with this as the subject in the Secrets PDF... so for now anyway, just imagine there's an Ankh instead of an Iron Cross.

I'm picturing it Blue with a Gold Ankh and golden trim.

Can you tell us who is in charge of it when Mobius is not on it?

Also the comment above does make wonder, as big as it is, there seems to be room for a Temple Chamber to perform Miracles. A full sized Temple would have an extra Axiom bump if I'm remembering correctly. That would make Blessing the planes prior to battle easier. This would also allow for a Walking God on the Zeppelin Aircraft Carrier. Which I dont think the characters would be expecting.

Thoughts?

Why the deck-on-top design didn't become popular in the Real Life? Was the deck too heavy? Did it make the airship prone to capsize?
(Knowing that lets us specify the required Weird-Science Solutions and make it look more "realistic" under the Nile Reality.)

That's an interesting question. I don't know if it would be physically possible or not in the real world, but I can think of plenty of reasons why nobody ever bothered trying. Dirigibles were tried for combat missions in WWI but were deemed too fragile to be practical. And so they were mainly used against subs or in non-combat roles in the World Wars. A dirigible carrier would be a juicy, high-value target, and how do you keep enemy fighters from tearing it apart?
