Those spires... I swear, they're out to get us. There's no way we can sail by night in these waters.Operation Red Bronze was established just twelve years after the reunification of the Ironfoot Isles, to create protocols for safe navigation through the Spire Fields, a catch-all term for groupings of ten-meter spikes jutting out of the water engraved with runes. Despite heavy casualties (over six hundred sailors in the first year alone), the operation was a success, and has undoubtedly saved many lives.
