       Additional Information  
      The colony was founded seventy years ago. The plan was originally to mine silver, but there turned out not to be any.

    Now an uneasy peace exists on the island, between the colonists and the once-noble met'Oc, a family in exile on a remote stronghold for their role in a vaguely remembered civil war. The met'Oc are tolerated, in spite of occasional cattle stealing raids, since they alone possess the weapons considered necessary protection in the event of the island's savages becoming hostile.

    Gignomai is the youngest brother in the current generation of met'Oc. And he is about to provide the spark that will ignite a brutal and bloody war.
