After years of a shadow-war occurring across the Bronze Sea, Fort Talos was invaded by an unknown infiltrator, some of the Winterveil Fleet pounced on this opportunity to gather information and destroy the stronghold. However, their efforts had failed due to the fort’s exterior and defense still being in-tact as opposed to its dungeon and so the fleet was forced to retreat once more.

The fleet, whom were patiently waiting nearby, immediately blockade the entire island, cutting off Ravenna from reinforcements as well as from escaping. After the king’s death, the Winterveil Fleet destroyed Ravenna’s remaining forces in order to buy time for the Lost Heir’s retreat. The fleet, who had recognize that they cannot face the might of the Bronze Legion’s fleet swiftly dispersed from the area once the prince and his allies have been secured.
