From the introduction:
The Satrapy of Eppion pays tribute in gold to the Emperor once every year. This year’s shipment, on a vessel laden with its tributary gold cargo, set sail from Metra’s industrious port heading for Plexus. That ship never reached the Coryani Empire. What lies beneath the waves off Metra? What new doom comes to Eppion?
