Saebjorn Crew (Lore)

From Hofborg

The Saebjorn Crew has been in operation for the last two or three decades under the captainship of Baene Thorrstad. The crew originally started with a small 12 oar long ship whose main use was the delivery and pick up of the goods produced at the Thorrstad sheep farm. As the crew grew in size and skill they began taking on some mercenary jobs, until the larger Saebjorn ship was finally completed. With the introduction of the larger 40 oar long ship, complete with a small cargo area and narrow crew quarters, the crew began to take on more and more challenging and complex jobs, many of which would be considered morally ambivelant.

Currently, the Saebjorn Crew operates out of Hofborg, a town along the coast, west of Solitude in Western Skyrim. The crew has its hands deep into the goings on of the town, and currently represents the largest portion of the player (and NPC) population in the town. Many of the crew additionally work in the town as crafters or guards. While the Borg itself is now under the jurisdiction of the Hofborg Thane, Brygg-Bottom which includes the docks and the Wharf Rat in the town is where the Saebjorn crew call home.
