When our nation came together and turned against the sea, we fought it as ferociously as any foe. And when we had vanquished it, we started looking for more to take for our own. This was, I say, the greatest tragedy we have ever caused.After the reunification of the isles of Ironfoot, the military must be redirected somewhere. And some days, that somewhere is the expansion of the empire. Under the orders of the newly ascended Sara Aban of House Aban, the navy embarked on a voyage to conquer the seas. But the seas are not a place friendly to sailors. Not only are there storms, there are sea monsters and strange metal spikes. The monsters may be innocuous, like the patient herbivore that just happens to eat wooden items such as ships. Or they may be dangerous, like the flying bat-like mammal that would just as happily grab a human for a snack as a large fish. Nonetheless, they must be dealt with just like the steel pylons that sometimes surface to gore your ship to pieces. And the question always arises as to what's next, after the people conquer the sea? The answer is simple: to rule it. And the Federation will rule the seas for centuries.
