The Battle of the Markovian Sea was a naval battle fought between the Imperial Charisian Navy and a combined force of the Imperial Harchongese Navy and the newly created Navy of God.

Prelude Edit

Following the belated realization that they had successfully deceived the Empire of Charis by using sealed orders sending the Navy of God and Imperial Harchongese Navy east to reinforce Desnair, not west to reinforce Dohlar, the inner circle determined that the union of the fleets should be stopped.

Using merchant galleon painted in Navy colors, the ICN gave the impression of sealing the Desnairi in their ports. At the same time the first shells were loaded onto Admiral Rock Point's squadron, which then joined the rest of the ICN in the region under the command of Lock Island.

Using data from SNARCs, High Admiral Lock Island closed in on the combined Navy of God and Harchongese Navy fleet at night. (HFAF)
