A ship of legend, the Excelsior was hired by the Cathedral of Pelor to deliver religious artifacts recovered on a distant expedition. Believing they had found a way to permanently raise their faith above all others, the church unloaded a fortune in hiring the Excelsior. Sailing away under the tall acting captain, Ford, the Excelsior has not been seen since, and more than 30 years have passed.
The massive funding of the voyage left the coffers of the church weak, and following, the faith well and truly waned.
The Excelsior became the stuff of stories, a ‘lost ship carrying mysterious treasure’, but no sign was ever seen of it again, until very recently, when the Intrepid was sent in search of a rumor.
