Haven is quite a bit bigger than picture. Shown for placement)
Captain Vance and Snargle,
You head back to the cockpit and join Snargle. You both see squadrons of biplanes from the Hand of Despair
headed towards Haven. The Hand
has started returning fire on Haven now, and during the fight and chat with Naomi and Lady Blackbird, over half the air defenses of Haven have been destroyed. The biplanes are dive bombing the docks now, and Snargle, you've witnessed five merchant vessels that have either been harpooned and pulled into the hangars of the Hand of Despair
, or shot down. It's a slaughter.
After the captain left you alone, where did you go? Did you resume your post at the turret now?
Now that you're healed up, where have you gone?
What's going wrong with The Owl
Suddenly, over the wireless, over loudspeakers from the Hand of Despair
, you hear a broadcast. The voice is clipped, in crisp, Imperial fashion :
"Citizens of Haven. This is Captain Isiah Vance of the Hand of Despair. You are harboring fugitives from the justice of the Great and Wondrous Empire of One Hundred Worlds. These criminals sabotaged and brought low the Hand of Sorrow, murdering her fine Captain Hollas. They kidnapped the kind and beautiful Lady Blackbird. They must be captured and returned to Ilysium. I am willing to bring Haven low to accomplish this goal. I will continue to fire forward guns and bomb your harbor until Lady Blackbird and her captors are returned. That is all."
