War Cart Modification- Sails: Our Artisans are on a roll, let's see about Adding Sails to our carts. The Wind Chant is perfect for pushing them.{For next Design Phase}

War Cart Decomplexification: Our War Carts must be Sturdy and Robust, and most of all, we must know how to build them to a perfect standard.

So something we should do is revise pavise/rectangular shields so our crossbowmen can turn around and be basically invulnerable while reloading.

What's the flag for? And can we enchant it?

The flags are for signaling in combat, coordinating between units.

Pavise Shield
A large rectangular shield, strapped to a crossbowman's back to protect him as he reloads---merely by turning away from the enemy our soldiers can be extremely well-protected from enemy missile fire. Based on our present wooden shields, it is made primarily of wood with a metal boss and metal reinforcements around the edge.

I say we revise our arrows/bolts, to make them more deadly - we should make the heads barbed.

No, if anything we'd want to revise the crossbow to be easier to reload---a light crossbow shouldn't be slow and dangerous to reload. Well, THAT slow, anyway. Also, we don't want barbed heads, we want armor-piercing ability, so chisel-tips or similar designs are the order of the day.

Given we currently only have two proposals,

Someone needs to write up more, or vote on the ones we already have to push them forward.

Windforged Steel
By inscribing Shape, Ward, and Attack runes all with Air mana onto the firebox of a forge, we can replace bellows with much more efficient and constant streams of air. By doing the same thing in front of a sort of "waterfall" of the resulting liquid iron, we can literally blow almost all the impurities out of the iron, taking almost all of the work out of making wrought iron, the first step in making good steel or great iron armors and weapons. Our craftsmen and artisans will then be able to forge masterworks of steel quite easily, or works of iron without the tedious process of making wrought iron.

Right, So from the discussion over on discord. I think I gleaned a pretty solid idea of how rune magic fundamentally works, which I will explain once I develop it a bit more. Besides that, I think I know how different types of casting work.
So Air gives us chants
in other words
(A)=Ch[]
thus
Water=potions
Earth=enchantments
Fire=High power single use attacks
Wood=Bodily enhancements.

Bellows of wind.
By imbuing our chant of wind into a bellows, we can create a much more steady stream of air, though still not constant. And by doing the same thing in front of a sort of "waterfall" of the resulting liquid iron, we can literally blow almost all the impurities out of the iron, taking almost all of the work out of making wrought iron, the first step in making good steel or great iron armors and weapons. Our craftsmen and artisans will then be able to forge masterworks of steel quite easily, or works of iron without the tedious process of making wrought iron. Plus it makes a fairly good weapon, creating powerful streams of air.

To note, on discord, I would propose this in place of what they want.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_hearth_furnace

Form(Air) Ward(Fire) Control(Air)

Oxygen is formed, followed by a flame ward.
Air is then burned through this ward.
Thanks to control Air.

Rather than just blasting the iron, this allows us to control what goes into it, forming steel that can be molded into ingots for later use in crafting. It also has the advantage of not being brittle like the metal produced by the bessemer process.

We won't be able to make this design,{Open Hearth Process} until after the next turn due to the need to grab Form and Control, as well as creating the spell. But it will be ready by the first combat, and far superior.

As this is going in circles. Sails and Chants gives us mobility, given the Steel ideas seem to go nowhere by order of GM.

Light armor
Partial scale mail designed to provide better protection than hide armor, while still being cheap enough for everyone to have one.
