These small airships have had a varied history in Sordane. They were found in use as support ships to larger frigates and dreadnoughts in the military and as transport ships in cities. Over time, the development of other military class airships and the use of sky coaches for transport left skyskiffs in an awkward place. Little was done to develop them as, although they were sleeker and faster than other airships, their lack of crew and storage space, and weak sordalite crystals heavily limited their desirability.
This all changed when a group of bandits known as the Crystal Runners used a skyskiff to rob a noble, the smaller hull allowed it to easily maneuver around the crowded city skies, escaping the local guard in their bulky coaches. The display caught the attention of skiff owners, who began using them for deadly but thrilling races throughout the world. With the advent of skiff racing, skyskiffs boomed in popularity, which eventually led to the formation of the Skiff Racing Commission, a global organization dedicated to regulating these races in the majority of nations across Sordane.
Though their popularity has risen, there are still few advancements in skiff technology as they lack the same military application as other airships. Occasionally there will be new designs added to the approved racing regulations, however, the ship is still limited by the small sordalite crystal powering it, a restriction put in place by the Skiff Racing Commission to prevent widespread destruction in cities.
