“Well said, honored High King,” Telissat said, feeling conciliatory in his tone, “there is something to be said for the idea of a regional court indeed and though we think it unlikely that such a court will be formed, we are happy to endorse the Absolute Royal Federation as a location for it.

“Corva,” the man said, the voice was quiet, over the sound of the horse race being simulcast into the bar; the screens on the sides of the room showed the bets being placed, and Corva looked up. “Machil Corva,” the man said again, bounding up the steps toward the raised booth, to grasp his hand, squ...

Telissat listened to the responses that were coming to the idea of a regional warcrimes court with a mixed feeling of pleasure and guilt, on the first side it was simple enough; he recognized easily that it was a ploy in part to try and confine his people’s influence, and that was against their intr...

Telissat looked at the group and let his hand flicker over the paper in front of him. The C’tani used a cursive tradition in their writing, and to understand Necrontyr in its written form one had to be familiar with three different script-forms, including the dreaded sine-script. Telissat’s handwrit...

Philomena was not, by the laws of the Old Imperium, the holder of the Damsdatter Warrant of Trade. That would have passed by the articles of the warrant to the first child of Nathaniel Damsdatter, who had borne it at the time of the Starchange, presently her cousin, Erica Damsdatter.

“I am a shipmind, yes,” Telissat said, “my actual ship-form is up in orbit,” he said, pointing upward to a spot on the ceiling, “I can bring it down to a visible altitude later if you want a look,” he said to Tynah. “This body is one of several ‘avatars’ that I have, so that I can talk to people eas...

Narellan held out his hand over the water, his thumb tucked against his palm and two fingers raised. The water trembled, shivering moment to moment. It wasn’t exactly a map of Caltris, but the pattern was there, the major thoroughfares and routes of the city could be seen as lines pressed into the s...
