Early in the 9th month of 3017 GSC, a charter was granted to the Mikado's nephews; Lord Aniseth Whitemeadow was given land holdings on the planet, Heled in Rarjuni System, to found an outpost and begin to colonize the new holding with a mind for turning it into a rich resource for the expanding state. Colonists of all sorts piled upon the KSV Deluge, a converted civilian cruise liner, to stake their claims and make their way upon truly unclaimed land.

But Whitemeadow, is a fledgling at best, and like the colony he and his foundling Knights and Retainers must grow to brave the unknown hills and valleys of their new home with wisdom and courage, proving themselves, in the Kowloon way, “Noble by prowess, brave and true,” as the fate of a world and the success of the colony rests in the attempt.
