Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


NARRATOR: Deep in the Esspererin colony city of Beskin-Sashik...

ANTOSSA: Tell me about the mercenary company hovering above us.

TESS: They arrived in an over-engineered cargo vessel with a single capital ship as escort. They don't seem threatening, but this company is widely rumored to have destroyed two battleplates, and stolen the entire city of Credomar.

ANTOSSA: I don't want rumors. I want an actual threat assessment.

TESS: Their marketing manager would be a truly formidable opponent.
