Description[edit | edit source]
This vessel's surface-dweller name was derived from its resemblance to the creature of the same name. The name used by the sahuagin reflected its ability to gracefully traverse both the ocean's surface and underwater environments.
These vessels were typically constructed from salvaged shipwrecks, and the odd coastal wood. They could typically carry a crew of up to six hundred sahuagin or more. On average, a manta could traverse up to 240 miles (390,000 meters) a day or, if need be, 360 miles (580,000 meters) a day at risk of exhausting the crew (equivalent to a forced march for surface dwellers). This feat was achieved by crew rotation, as two-thirds of the crew would actively be pushing the vehicle forward, while the remainder rested on top of the craft.
