The Dreaming Princess is painted white, and made mostly of wood. Inspected close up it gives the impression of being extremely sturdy, but its construction is actually quite light.
Propulsion is achieved with a massive array of sails, arranged in an X-wing pattern to the front. Heading and bearing is controlled using huge slow-moving fans at the back. Lift is generated through three redundant gas-envelopes in the interior of the ship – at all times two of the envelopes is sufficient to keep the ship operating normally, but it can easily make a safe landing with only one of them. The gas is a mixture of Cloudia and other gasses.
