Castle Peak Campaign 5001
Rumours and News
The five squadrons of the Akko Navy took on supplies and munitions and departed port, standing out to sea and steaming southwards. The press-gangs were out a little in and around the dockyard areas to top up the crews, but the short period between orders and departure prevented much in the way of desertion.
While there is at present no appointed Lord Warden of the Port, the dockside rumours around the wharves as the long-quiescent vessels readied themselves for a voyage are that a shakedown cruise and exercise is planned after their extended time in harbour. In the taverns frequented by the officers, however, the discussion focused on the curious news that the destination for the exercises was not being disseminated through the fleet, presumably to avoid any rumours reaching the roaming fleet of the Caid of Tyche.
Crusaders Head South Jun 07 2013
The military preparations that had turned the Old Terminal into a hive of Crusader activity over the last several weeks have come to fruition, with a column of cavalry, foot, motorised infantry, artillery tractors, armoured fighting vehicles and supply trucks heading out of the city under the Dragon-and-Jumpcross banner of the Dragon Legion of the Li Halan.
Curiously, they were headed south, along the coastal road, although recent rumours in the City have indicated that the relationship between Countess Amber and the devout Lord-General have become strained of late, and there seemed to be a low likelihood of any Li Halan forces being committed to the battles for Teldam.
