The Eighth Sea knows the location of an incredibly valuable data cache on Mercury. It’s stored in an abandoned antimatter factory, supposedly infested with Exsurgents. The crew must get the data so first they have to scout the factory out and learn its defenses and weaknesses. First they have to establish a new hideout and get weapons and gear. Of course, Mercury is a harsh planet inhabited by harsh people. It won’t be as easy to fit in.

After the polar assault, the Eighth Sea has to lay low to avoid getting caught. Half the team hops through a Pandora Gate. While they wait on an exoplanet colony, the crew takes on a heist to pass the time. They plan to claim jump an archaeological dig site by forging proof of who first discovered it. Of course, nothing is simple or easy on an exoplanet.

The Eighth Sea launches the assault! The Night Cartel’s polar fortress is their last stronghold on Mars and if the Eighth Sea can destroy it and capture a certain VIP, they can remove the cartel from the planet entirely. But if the assault fails, the Eighth Sea will be wiped out utterly.

In order to launch an assault on a polar fortress, the Eighth Sea must assemble an army. Quite literally that is. They must transport fabricators and raw materials across the Martian wastes in secret. Fooling the satellites and sensors of the authorities is one thing but surviving the hazards of the deep desert wastes is another.

The year is 1880, and the posse is forming.It’s easy to feel alone as the shadows gather and the pale moon rises over the High Plains. The Apache say that on nights like this, the cold wind from the prairie has a mind of its own – a malignant chill, born of the darkness, which eats at your warmth, and steals all compassion.

It was a night like that when Barton Duvall rode into Tombstone. A night like that when they found what was left of little Alina Hundle – the few sad remains, barely recognizable, that Barton had left for her family to bury. And, it was a night like that when you realised that justice was more than a word bandied around by fearful shopkeepers – it was a necessity.
