Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

The Strait of Arterus, Huranese Coast The helicopter cleared a layer of clouds, and below them the Horn of Crataea came into view, the very northern tip of the continent, straddling the Strait of Arterus.

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

Oiregei had never known anything but the farm, his entire life.

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

Minutes after the bombing, Ubaidians began to gather round the ruined imperial train station, where a fire was still blazing at its heart, and blasted bodies were still strewn across the ground.
