๐ŸบBuilding a Vehicle

Previously called "ships"; These are the functional shift from the first release of the ships information when 5e initially launched, following UA "Of Ships and Sea", and then formally included with the Campaign set for Ghosts of Saltmarch.

An Example:

The _Meta is normally included in a full JSON, for this example it has been removed. See the link for how to develop the _meta.
