Ships are the local chapters of KAG.  Ships come in all sizes.  They often start small and grow bigger, or they might stay small, it all depends on what feels right for the individual ships.  The traditional number of people it takes to start a ship is five, but some ships have started with more, or less, than this number.

How do you get started, and what do you do to keep it going?  Find a few friends who will agree to be your crew, and you’re on your way.  Ship formation can be that informal, although there is a more formal procedure available as a pattern for those who prefer formality (see following section titled ‘Formal Ship Construction’).
