The Sevensun Sword

When the Circulation returned to Korts Narrie for the fifth time, only six ships were present. The Burgan Wiom left Nerthamita with the other ships, but in the darkness she was lost to debris collision or some systems failure.

The other ships saw nothing, and Hypharia could hear no trace amid the grinding rotations of the stars and planets.

In the halls of Bilot, rumours and speculation were rife - of sabotage, conspiracy, incompetence - but there was nothing to be done. The sword was gone.
