Battle At Baninau Bay: A Kaleithian View


      The Isle of Kaleith and its port city Baninau are home to passionate citizens whom have been able to cut ties with, in their words, the greed-driven Archai Trading Company.  Though other world powers have tried to procure their freedom from the umbrella of the Archai Trading Company, few have succeeded.  The Archai Trading Company is based in the City of Pearl on New Archai Isle.  Its success has been said to be preserved by the abuse and destruction it is willing to force onto others.  While under the ATC's control, many Kaleithians lived impoverished, unable to meet the price demands imposed on their imports due to severely low payments for export goods.  In a bid to take retake control, the inhabitants of the Isle of Kaleith converged upon the local ATC's port in protest.  To quell the angered, the ATC, assisted by the Pearlean King's Navy, assembled its fleet and attacked the main port city it had controlled.

      Firing cannonballs into the night, the ATC destroyed the harbor's docks and razed the port city's shops and houses.  With word of the bombardment quickly spreading across Kaleith, many ships set sail to defend what they could.  Kaleithian ships are produced by master craftsmanship; what they lack in size, they make up for with maneuvers and tactics.  Kaleithian Navy ships arrived, which had been patrolling the waters around the isle.  With them came a slough of pirate ships.  The Kaleith Navy battled fiercely to hold the attackers at bay, while the pirates seized or sank any support vessels.  The battle lasted for weeks as more Kaleithian and Pearlean ships joined the fight.

      Having successfully held back the combined fleet of the Archai Trading Company and King's Navy, the Pearlean attackers' numbers dwindled.  Retreat soon followed leaving the Kaleithian victorious.  Over time, the docks, shops, and houses were rebuilt.  Trade resumed as alternate shipping routes were successfully established.  Though, the ATC appears to have a foothold on many direct shipping routes between major isles, they have shown they cannot be everywhere at once.  Having sought and attained their freedom, the people of the Isle of Kaleith and the port city of Baninau now live outside the Archai Trading Company's rule.
