The world is at a turning point. The greatest forces the world has ever seen, piracy and the budding Empire have come to a head, battling for control over the churning seas. The pirates have suffered a great setback, as their one true haven and port in the viscous storm that is the Empire has disappeared, along with a great number of their leading captains and fiercest ships. In their wake, civilization stretches its reach to the farthest corners of the globe, eradicating thieves and smugglers as it goes. The pirates that remain are lost and scattered, hardly a threat to the seemingly endless enemy naval fleet.

Amidst this battle is the tale of two brothers, one a disgraced pirate, the other a young lord on his deathbed. After 16 years at sea, the pirate brother has come home with the intent to save his dying sibling. A deal made in secret and shadows will set the brothers on a course to change the very fabric of civilization, and awaken a new seat of power in the ocean - the Windswept Throne.
