AHHH, but, is the word 'poop' derived from the term poop deck?

No one know for sure.  It may come from a Middle English word meaning "to blow a horn, to toot, to break wind".

Oddly, while in Dutch 'poep'  means 'poop' (pronounced exactly the same), and 'poepen' means 'poop(verb)', in Flemish, 'poepen' means 'have sex', I shit you not.
I found out the hard way, when I told the girl behind the bar in a Belgian pub I was visiting that I needed to poop and asked if I could use the ladies' room because the men's room only had standing urinoirs.

So by medieval titanic but in a D&D game what can we expect? Magic? Sails? Pedals? Oars?

You mentioned cannon balls stores so it is expected to figth at some capacity, which would also mean a security detail or military detachment and crew. You are planing a pirate encounter arent you?

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?
My ship exploded midflight, but all the shrapnel totally landed on Alpha Centauri before anyone else did.  Bow before me world leaders!

Slavers would be cooler than pirates.  A military warship looking for more oarhands.

"My, what big, strong adventurers you are"

Actually, if you could get players to agree to play along with it, conscripts or some kind of forced marine/soldiers would be cool.

If the root is "blow the horn" this makes perfect sense in both contexts...

True, it had to be taught through the two troughs too, though the thoughts it threw out, were tough and thorough throughout.

No no.

Doctor doom specializes in fucking people over.

He is blowing a horn.

And, overall, he is shitting on everyone's cheerios.


It simultaneously fits every use of "Poepen" at once.

It's an old warship that has been converted to civilian use. Surprisingly I wasn't planning a pirate encounter, I was actually planning a high-jacking.

You can fake being able to run on water. You can't fake looking cool when you break your foot on a door and hit your head on the floor.

Unless it is an air ship I think it is more likely to be a sea-level jacking

The only reason DMs put PCs on boats is so they can use the really cool other half of the monster manual dedicated to sea monsters.
