Lost Harbor
Party time! As a gesture of friendship between the Free Fleets and the Federation, this year’s holiday party is being hosted for us, on Refuge, by Venya Kashar! Refuge’s promenade is even decorated for the occasion, with a large tree in the middle, holly and mistletoe everywhere, and for a night, the scoundrels will unite in revelry. We begin already at the party, and other than a slight warning from Captain Harper to watch yourselves around some of the other guests, the orders of the evening are to have fun!
