The Paradise Lost

After losing the elven Trimaran that was to be Port Sanctuary's first ship her surviving crew instead took this schooner belonging to the owner of a nautical chop-shop in Point Paradise. It was going to be the escape craft used by the criminal enterprise to flee the siege launched by Damien Harkon and his massive vessel, the Maelstrom.
Little is known of the ship's history prior to being conscripted into service by Port Sanctuary's sailors. Its distinguishing features and markings were scrubbed off by the chop-shop operators and many replacement or upgrade pieces were then added on. The weapon emplacements look to have been recently constructed and the foremast upgraded to a larger size. Recent patch work done to the forecastle along with the replacement of the foremast suggest the ship might not have been taken peacefully. The rudder doesn't show the typical reinforcements found in ships common to the turbulent waters of the region either, suggesting its origins may lie elsewhere.
Port Sanctuary plans on using the vessel to establish relations with new business contacts in Far Harbor and to help generate additional revenue for the fledgling city. To what degree those aspirations are fulfilled is entirely in the hands of her new crew.
