Even gold is crushed,
Even quetzal plume are torn . . .

We endure only for an instant!
The already poor Diplomatic situation shatters completely. Chief Hiawatha and King Alexander have organized the world against us. They covet our Power and our Luxuries.
The Iroquois have ruled the Seas for hundreds of years. They pound our weak Colonies of the Northern Isles. The Japanese, vassals of the Iroquois, along with the Iroquois Colonial forces, join the brutal attack on our Colonies.
Fortunately, our diplomats conclude a Cease Fire, but hostility remains. Hiawatha continues to plot.
