Ornithopter

"It is said that regardless of the century, plane, or species, developing artificers never fail to invent the ornithopter."  The old sage quoted.

"Maybe because so many dream of flying?"

"Perhaps."  


"It's ready"


"Are you?"


"Yes" The young artificer began to work the controls of his newly built machine.  Almost immediately it began to lift toward the blue sky.



Ornithopter
This item can carry up to 3 human sized occupants.  If it is operated by one operator then it moves at 180' per turn, two operators at 210' per turn, or three at 240' per turn.  For every non-operator the ornithopter carries the speed is reduced by 60' per turn.  For every hour the ornithopter is operated, the operators must make a Saving Throw vs. Paralysis or be unable to operate it for the next hour.  The saving throw is made harder by the number of passengers: -1 for one passenger, -2 for two.  In addition, for every 2 hours of operation there is an cumulative -1 penalty to the roll until the operators have rested for at least 6 hours.
