(IAP 1996)

It is a time of resolution, a time of endings. As the reign of the Chreotha comes to a close, so does the resistance of the Eldens to the Dragaeran invasion. Though this is an ending, it is also a beginning. The new territory holds endless possibility during the inexorable approach of the Yendi regime...

Marleigh:
I am sitting here this evening with Coll Fishmonger, a native here on the island of Elde. Mr. Fishmonger, what are your opinions on your new role as a Dragaeran subject?
Coll:
My name's not Fishmonger, it's Coll. Sellin' fish is what I do.
Marleigh:
Umm... yes, well, what do you think about being a subject?
Coll:
Subject of what?
Marleigh:
The Dragaeran Empire.
Coll:
Nope, thanks, I'd rather be on Elde. The fishin's no good on the mainland.
Marleigh:
But you already are in the Dragaeran Empire. They just conquered your island. Didn't you notice all of the ships?
Coll:
Well, there have been a lot of trawlers out lately, but I figure there's enough fish for everybody.
Marleigh:
aggravated tone There have not been more trawlers around, there have been warships! Didn't you notice that there were soldiers on board with swords and spears?
Coll:
Harpoons.
Marleigh:
What?
Coll:
Long sticks with points on the end.
Marleigh:
No, I meant, why did you say "harpoons"?
Coll:
You catch fish with harpoons, not spears.
Marleigh:
They weren't catching fish, they were killing people!
Coll:
No they weren't, they weren't doin' much of anythin', except gettin' seasick.
Marleigh:
Well, how do you feel about the Emperor bringing the entire court to Elde to sign the peace treaty and survey his new lands?
Coll:
Who?
Marleigh:
The Emperor.
Coll:
Oh. ponders a moment Does he like fish?
Marleigh:
yelling Can't you talk about anything except fish?
Coll:
confused expression Why?
Marleigh:
glare
