HMS Wolfgang

Technical data for all the fellow engineers:

Classic sternwheeler construction including a werewolf based engine that rotates the paddle wheel to produce thrust.

Engine power output: 1 WP (Werewolfpower) or if you use the roawian SI then it is 1 W (W for Werewolf)

The engine is running on the promise of pig.

It is recommended to keep a spare pig. I know, this is the most useless advice ever, because keeping a spare pig is a generally good idea.

Safety instruction: wearing capes near the wheel is not advised.

The helmsman controls the speed of the vessel by instructing the pig handler, which is a challenging task because he needs to consider many factors:

- Speed can be increased by moving the pig away from the werewolf making him think that the pig is getting away, hence his efforts are doubled.

- Speed can be lowered by moving the pig near to the werewolf. However, depending on the hunger of the werewolf this could also increase the speed. As I said, speed control is more like an art. This might have been the main cause why werewolf propelled ships did not become widespread.

- ATTENTION! The pig must always remain in the sight of the werewolf. The sudden disappearance of the pig (often happens on long trips if the pig handler faints and drops the pig) can have catastrophical results. If the werewolf gets confused, he could either go berserk and the vessel could reach a ludicrous speed it was not designed for OR he could lose sync and trip.
