Featured Story March 2018
When a near-death experience convinces Ran that it is his destiny to be savior of his planet, he's determined to get the other warlords to fall in line.  Just as he starts to get the fractious warlords under control, the General Union Space Corp comes calling. It's uncertain what they want from this forgotten colonial planet on the edge of colonized space. With a galactic-sized threat hanging over his head, Ran is going to need all the help he can get to keep Dobruja safe from enemies foreign and domestic.
