Crew: Captain, Navigator, First Mate, Second Mate, Engineer, Chef, 10 Deck Hands, 10 Cargo and Boarding Crew.
Armament: The ship is outfitted for 10 cannon and 12 ballista, but the weapons have been removed to reduce the weight of the ship to allow flight.
Power Source: Arcane. Essentially powered by a series of permanent mage hands that work together to help lift/lower the ship with it’s dirigible ballast as well as push the ship forward, backwards, and turn the ship left or right. There is no way that the arcane magic alone can pull this off, the secret of the engineering of the Titian Scourge is that the arcane engine utilizes crysteel to amplify the effects of the magic twenty fold, thus providing the power needed to steer the ship.
