Assigned to continue in his post as Acting Captain of the Oenira, Agamemnon Zhang is ordered to start seeding resistance in the Obsidian Isles against the Golirian occupation, and to deliver payment to a particular mercenary. To this end, Shu Fen is assigned “to the Oenira” to help complete the first of their two missions, and six unhappy conscripts are ordered to stay on with the ship indefinitely.

The Battle of Lisil (Part 2)

After an attempt at assassinating the leadership of the enemy army ends in the slaughter of 2 golirian soldiers, and the maiming of Kriefosal, the Nada’Athi forces offer to retreat and negotiate for peace if the Golirians turn over Maesra Naimi of Hramn.
