From publisher blurb:
The Golden Age was a prosperous time for Aden, largely bereft of military conflict. Other conflicts raged out of control, however, and the political arena was the most significant battlefield in the Known Lands. Despite the Darkfall, or perhaps because of it, these political conflicts have not abated, and men and women across the continent fight over resources, principles, and even simple pride. If the Darkfall does not end the world, perhaps it will end itself, and not with a bang, but a whisper.
This issue of the Aden Gazette describes four different hotbeds of poitical, economic, and even military diplomacy, where a knife in the back may be figurative, but no less deadly.
