The Chum Guzzler was a boating vessel that the then un-named Ätlän-tã Fælcons acquisitioned and took up in. They saved the slaves onboard, including the prostitute Ros. It was initially named the "Cum Dumpster", but this was revealed to have changed in Episode 90 - Somewhere Beyond the Sea. It currently resides at Deephome, under the command of Queen Aludra Wyrmsbane and Jaela.

The ship originally belonged to a pirate named Captain Hookbeard. When Aludra, Thom the Dragonborn, Tum Darkblade, and Junpei Iori were told that they needed to get from Mastwick to Caer, they were pointed toward Hookbeard as a possible means of transportation. The group found the captain and acquired passage aboard the ship, only to discover that Hookbeard and his crew were slavers, and their cargo was people! In response, the heroes mudered the pirates, and freed the slaves, one of whom was Ros. She would end up becoming captain of the ship, and a lifelong friend/rival of the adventurers. The rest of the slaves became the other crew members. There was a kerfuffle during Episode 28, where a mysterious force made all of the Chum Guzzler crew act in strange ways, but it was all sorted out when it was revealed that Brady stole some golden idol that made them all cursed. It was then fixed.

After several more adventures, the party took the boat to The Cursed Cave, where their next MacGuffin was. Unfortunately, this was where Tum Darkblade died, and not long afterward, Junpei Iori also left the party. This left the crew with a few openings, resulting in Winston and Lord Titus Harper joining the boat.

The boat was a part of the crew's adventures as their primary means of transportation until they accidentally travelled back in time to find The Brazier of Worlds. During this time, they saved a group of Griffons from the grips of an evil version of Thom Vidalis. Upon their return to the present, the griffons became their way of travelling around Drunkeros. Because of this, the ship, Ros, and the rest of the crew, became significantly sidelined, a mission to be found later on, after the crew were killed by Fennekin and brought back to life (it was a whole thing).

Another adventuring group, on a mission from Mordenkainen herself, was sent to give a book named the Demonomicon to Fennekin, not realizing he was evil. They were pointed toward the Chum Guzzler as a means of getting to the man, but their journey was interrupted by a group of demons attacking. Before they could get their hands on the book, however, one of the adventurers, a gnoll named Steve Meloncamp teleported away, accidentally sending himself to the bottom of the oceon. There, he drowned, leaving the book there. As for the others, they were later attacked by Fennekin himself, deciding to take matters into his own hands. The result of this battle is unknown, but the ship and crew survived, and so did Fennekin, so presumably, he just ran off. Oh, well.

It wasn't long after this (presumably, seeing as how the ship was still floating around there, and the book wasn't waterlogged or anything), that there was a reunion between the ship and the original adventurers. A wizard named Zird the Arcane brought the crew to the bottom of the ocean in a magical submarine named The Belafonte to find the Demonomicon. After grabbing it, they surfaced and boarded their old ship, catching up with those onboard and everyone was happy.

The ship became their homebase/ship on and off as they teleported around Drunkeros, and met up again, rinse and repeat, until The Battle Above the Abyss and the subsequent Five Year Gap. During this time, Lord Titus Harper became King Titus Harper, ruler of Pelor's Hope. He maintained ownership of the boat, which his wife, Ashayara Dayne, made him cover up the name of. He took it to Deephome to attend the wedding of Aludra and Baldur Oakback, along with bodyguards Nyx and Marendithas Bearcharger. Bearcharger died after the boat was attacked by a beholder, and in the most infamous episodes of the series, the whole mission was halted by the antics of Bananas Foster, the little shit. He, too, died, and eventually, the boat picked up Jett Razor, a famous musician, and, again eventually, the group made it to Deephome, where it would stay for a while.

After the events of The War of Wyrmsbane Keep, the party decided to go and wrap up a lingering plotline of Harper's, taking down the dreaded Longcryer. As his tower was inland, they took the Griffons, leaving the boat back in Deephome. After this storyline wrapped up (Harper died), there was a lot of teleportation, culminating in the next storyline, with Nareev. Jett Razor turned out to be evil, and he also had an airship named Jett's Toi, which the party (now named the Ätlän-tã Fælcons), stole and renamed The Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. This further cemented the Chum Guzzler's useless-ness, basically ensuring that it wouldn't be used for a while.

The Chum Guzzler was last seen in Deephome, when Jaela and Aludra said their goodbyes to each other (they were later reunited and married, but the boat wasn't involved). After this point, it was not seen nor heard from, though it is most likely still hanging out in Deephome, doing little.

Ros was the first crew member rescued by the party, and she became the de facto captain of the ship, as the adventurers were too busy adventuring to run things. She's pretty cool, even if she does have a dark past...

Xantolin

Xantolin was a Darkblade fangirl and as such had great regard for Tum. He asked the party to go get revenge on Xantac for killing Xantolin's puppy Rover. During Episode 28, Xantolin tried to fight Tum for his Darkblade insignia, hoping that would make him a Darkblade. Xantolin later got promoted to First Mate, but was lost overboard and presumed dead. He survived and ended up on Mastwick, where he got to join the Darkblades for real.

Winston

He did show up at Jaela's bachelorette party, where he expressed his disdain for being ignored and overlooked so much, although really, Randy, maybe it's your own fault. Make an effort to stand out more, you know? Be noticed. Stand up for yourself.
