Bio:

Captained by Crucius Vanmar, The Weeping Turret is a prized charter vessel out of Lanterum’s Low-Port district.

Despite the ship’s age, she is extremely sea-worthy and in excellent condition. Her crew, a full complement, may not be the most notorious…or well spoken of, but they are competent and capable.
