Some were definately broken, though, and couldn't jsut be attributed

The thought that originally brought up this particular question had
to do with how a pure Norse fleet could ever handle the Dwarfs since
you must damage a dwarf vessel to board and the Norse have no ranged

ramming ;-) or Dark Elves, whom one does not want to meet up close
