The Sailors of the Crimson Sea were a mercenary company based in Chessenta and active in Chondath around 1358 DR.[1]


They were divided into infantry, cavalry, and archers.[1]


They tried to work for good employers but never worked for free. They charged 250 gold pieces per week for their services.[1]


The Sailors were founded in the mid-1300s DR by Bendix but had many misfortunes. They suffered many casualties during the Battle of Thurgabanteth in Chondath, including Bendix. A new leader emerged after a brief power struggle, but faced the challenges of leading a group suffering from low morale.[1]
