Etheric Cannon are cannon which have Weapon crystals that are activated to blast energy at other ships.
Each cannon had a copper-clad barrel with a framework of copper and brass. There was a row of weapon crystals centered exactly and suspended inside the barrel length on copper wires. When the weapon was activated it acted similarly to a Gauntlet but on a much larger scale emitting large blinding flashes. The energy of the cannon crystal was added to the outgoing rush of power causing pure destruction.
The cannons "nosed out from a rotating ball assembly" that let the gunners swing the cannon forward, back, up and down. 
Power and Range Edit
- one cannon bolt could incinerate most of an unarmored ship if hit in he right spot.
- A light cannon is supposed to be able to fire a bolt to hit from two miles, but in reality, to hit more than half a mile it takes a steady ship a steady target, a skilled gunner and luck.
There was the flash of the gun, the flash impression of a glowing comet and then the impact. There wa no sighting in between. A cannon blast moved too fast to be seen, there was no dodging it.
Defense Against Etheric Cannon Fire Edit
- One of the functions of the Goggles, having dark lenses, is to protect from the blinding effects o the cannon fire, thought not one hundred ercent protective.
- Close range cannon fighting was better for the heavier warships that were armored to withstand multiple hits and carried big guns.
