Fortunes of the Imperium is out!
For those of you who loved Lord Thomas Kinago’s first adventure, View From the Imperium, here is the second of his exploits. Lord Thomas has been sent as an envoy from the Emperor, his cousin, to meet the Autocrat of the Uctu Autocracy. It would seem a straightforward mission, but Thomas is determined to put his own stamp on the operation. He is certain that his new enthusiasm for superstitions will give him a unique perspective.
It’s not a pretty situation. A number of merchant ships have been impounded by the Uctu authority who claim they are smuggling weapons over the border. Thomas’s cousin Jil has come along for the ride, with an entire bevy of her friends, some of whom seem intent on gaining Thomas’s affections. It’s up to Thomas to discover what is really going on, and up to Commander Parsons to keep Thomas from getting in too deep.
