A large wooden barrel, strengthened by iron ribbons.

Large barrels are used to store items or liquids in, they can be loaded, taken and planted.


  • Used to store items.
  • Can be loaded onto a rowing boat, small sailing boat, large cart, wagon, corbita, cog, knarr, and caravel.
  • Some items can be placed on top of a large barrel, as decoration. Since the item is a container already, any items placed on it will be dropped on the ground when it is picked up; a message in event log will notify the player of this.


  • It has a liquid capacity of 250kg.
  • Slows the decay of the items in them.
  • It is the QL of the iron ribbon that determines the success rate.
  • If you fail creating, the ribbon and plank used are both damaged.
