Reader discretion is advised.
Amid the dying embers of the once great fire of Rome, a fleet of five war ships set out on a voyage of vengeance.
The fleet departed the crumbling empire which bore it from the bay at Ostia. The once youthful energy of Ostia, an energy that had greeted dignitaries from across the sea, that had defended its country from foreign invaders, had been superseded by a listless decay that permeated every street in the once proud city.
