The Royal Swallow is a Royal ship.
During the celebration of King Lyam's coronation, Amos Trask "borrowed" the ship and discovered Guy du Bas-Tyra and Armand de Sevigny smuggled onboard. He was ready to thrown him overboard but was convinced by Guy to turn the ship to Bas-Tyra.
The three decided to head for the Keshian Confederacy to try their luck. On their way, they were hounded by Ceresian pirates and were caught in a storm. They anchored safely; however, the second night they were attacked by goblins and the Royal Swallow was burned to the waterline.
