- The fierce battle on the Iron Vulture ends with Solar Karnage flushing the bomb-bay doors with all the Dragon-Blooded and their allies. And her along with it, falling an unimaginable height to their deaths. Lunar Karnage takes his crew & ship and fades into history.
- The Seventh Legion, under the command of Chumyo Nefvarin Gilshalos, arrives at Deheleshen to discover it has been razed by the Fair Folk. The legion bivouacs there and, following the final command of the region’s daimyo, begins to fortify its position.
