Publisher's Description of the Product[edit]

While the Jihad raged, pirates had their way with the newborn Filtvelt Coalition. Finally, the Filtvelters had suffered too much. They launched an invasion of Tortuga Prime, to punish the pirates in their den. But the force sent to exact retribution found itself mired in a close-packed city filled with traps and enemies too numerous to count. The invasion became a desperate effort to survive to return home, bearing secrets the pirates and their Word of Blake sponsors would prefer remain concealed.
