About the Story

You have been waiting for this vacation for weeks and the trip on the Essex is just the start, but somewhere in your mind lurks the feeling that all is not exactly as expected. It may be the news of enemy Vollchon activity or the peculiarities of some of your fellow passengers or even the odd rumors about the Essex itself. Something tells you that more than a simple vacation awaits you here on this enormous vessel.
