Victory Chimes
Description This name was originally that of a patrol sloop that Gordon Smith had captained earlier in his life. After it was run aground during a storm and abandoned north of Dargon, Clifton Dargon built a new three-masted schooner bearing the same name for Captain Smith, in honor of his return of the stolen Bard's Crown. Over time both the schooner and the captain accumulated a large body of legend, despite fairly routine service. Smith took the ship on a final voyage of exploration in 1012, but he elected to give the ship to first mate Victor Kent and stay on in Bichu himself. The VC (its common nickname) returned to Dargon under Kent's able command.
