Last Year's Events: When they discovered the presence of Thyatians on the nearby Isle of the Dogs, many veterans from Ersenbal attacked the budding colony. Ersenbal's battered navy was badly beaten at sea, and the Thyatians mounted a counter-offensive that put Ersenbal under naval blockade until Alpha recognised the new Thyatian dominion. The military failure greatly destabilised Ersenbal.
