The Emperor Magnus is a luxury river liner, named after Magnus the Pious, who won the Great War against Chaos and saved the Empire centuries ago. Run by the large and powerful Hindelin Lines of Altdorf, it plies the river Reik from Altdorf to Marienburg. Built by the Spee boatyards in Altdorf in 2509, the Magnus and its sister-ships the Emperor Wilhelm (Altdorf-Nuln) and Emperor Luitpold (Altdorf-Berghafen) give the Hindelin Lines an unrivalled luxury fleet. The ‘Emperor’-class river liners are much favoured by wealthy merchants, those on Imperial business and the lesser nobility.
In 2511, a harpy managed to nest in the Emperor Magnus, stealing livestock and jewels from the Magnus and other boats.
Its current captain is Kapitan Wilhelm and the cost of passage from Altdorf to Marienburg is 100GC for a stateroom, 35GC for normal passengers and 30GC for servants.
