Penned from the desk of Captain Sir Robert Stanton, 3 Fire, 1719:
Based on my prerogatives as departing Commanding Officer of this post, I am putting forward the following promotions, to take effect immediately:
- Serendipity Locke, to the rank of Boatswain. Boatswain Locke will be serving as the principle point person for chemical invention with an eye to military innovation.
- Udo Alize, to the rank of Boatswain. Boatswain Alize will be serving as the military attache to the militia.
- Steadfast Willoughby, to the rank of Boatswain. Boatswain Willoughby will be serving as the Purser.
It has been a pleasure and an honor working with each and every one of you in this small settlement on the edge of nowhere. Where our predecessors failed, we have succeeded, and I see nothing but greatness in your future, and in the future of Kithira.
For the Queen.
