The windjammer, Maeve Lambourne, needs to land a new patron in the worst way. Low on supplies and desperately needing the armaments to survive the Daskensian threat, she's willing to take any job. A mysterious stranger offers her a simple task for a huge payout: retrieve a stolen relic. She jumps at what sounds like easy money to refit and restock her ship, then she discovers the easier the job the more it might get them all killed.
