Victoria Poten, in one final, desperate, mad attack may succeed where no law officer ever did, spreading death and destruction and bringing the Executive of Crime crashing down around its creators and sending the world into chaos as it faces what could be “The Fall of Continent-Eight”.
In the aftermath of the mighty conflict of the world-girding Executive of Crime, Swashbucklers and criminals alike are cast into a whirlpool of shifting alliances, fleeing felons, and new menaces, including the most dangerous villain the world has even known back from the dead on what can only be called “A Glorious Day”.
