Abeir the ship
Crewed by members of a sailing vessel brought through to Eberron by the Gate of Xabra, the Abeir is a unique vessel on Lake Galifar. Almost half the crew is Genasi, and the ship is an experimental venture that Arcanix developed as a mirror to House Lyrandar Elemental Galleons.
The ship trades throughout the lake and Silver Lake to the South, as well as serving as a research platform for several arcanists. Although capable of traversing the river to Eldeen Bay, because of an agreement with Lyrandar it remains on the lakes.
The ship is a lanteen-rigged, 65 foot vessel that displaces 35 tonnes. Its lower displacement and speed give it an advantage in trade on the lakes and up the river to Eldeen Bay. Captained by Fin Storm, a rakish Genasi, and crewed by 20 more individuals that seem to be more from the Lhazaar Principalities than anywhere else, the ship has gained a reputation in the region. They do a fair number of contracts for the Arcane Congress where speed and secrecy are of importance.
