Old Glory was a phraxship which Nate Quarter and his friends boarded at the Midwood Decks to travel to Hive and find Galston Prade. It was a relatively large trading phraxbarge which carried lufwood timber from the Midwood Decks to Hive.
Old Glory was captained by a woodtroll named Barkscruff, a free timbersmith who opposed Hive's importation of lufwood timber and ambitions to annex the Midwood Decks. There were also gnokgoblin, Slaughterer and Flathead crew members.
Old Glory was a large phraxbarge of the old design. It was over 60 strides long and twenty strides wide, and had a large Phraxchamber suspended by many thick Ironwood struts. At the front was a wheelhouse from which the captain controlled the ship. A slight problem was the skybarnacle encrusted rudder, but these pests make decent 'sky fare'.
