A dak is a type of ship; specifically, a merchant vessel. This is one part of a special double release from HWG. Friends, Foes & Followers — Parts 4, 5, 6 (qv) includes nine characters inspired by the Sci-Fi series “Firefly” transposed into the world of Hârn as seagoing folk instead of spacefaring folk. Their ship is a 64 foot dak, a medieval type of ship known to us as a cog. Despite its connections to FFF6, it can be used separately for any seaborne adventures, perhaps starting with Sail Ho! (qv).
