Ran is the 10th Warlord of Brundt, the largest territory of the former Republic of Dobruja-- a colonial planet on the outermost edge of the old Galactic Corp expansion. A near death experience convinces him that he's been named Shaipur, mythical savior of all Dobruja, by the Ancestors themselves. He's on a mission to rein in the other Warlords and stabilize Dobruja. Just when he thinks he's finally got things under control, the reformed galactic government comes calling. The new General Union has its own agenda for reunification, and it's uncertain what role Dobruja and Ran are meant to play in this new galactic corp's plans.

Meanwhile, Ran is discovering that interpreting and acting on mystical visions is much harder than he might have expected. The other Warlords have their own ideas about what the Shaipur should do. And they consider their own interests to be of paramount importance, even with a galactic-sized threat literally hanging over their heads. Ran is going to need a lot of help from his staff, his wives, and the Ancestors themselves to keep Dobruja safe from enemies foreign and domestic.
