Navigation tools (hr)

 Ok so I have been put in task of researching Navigation tools to appear in the admirals room. After lots of researching what the chinese would have had in the 15th centuary i was a bit put out. Obviously they had the beautiful Compass below, however apart from that i havent found any other instruments which the chinese had during this period. The reason for this is that the chinese had many rules and laws about how to distinguish wind direction and weather, distance and speed. These came in the form of tables or scribings upon scrolls or on tablets.

I have decided there fore to incorporate a Scroll which denotes how you choose wind direction, with caligriphy brushes and pots for scribing them.

Here are pictures i have found to help me in my drawings which will come next!
