The Tale of Pigmote Isle
In which a delegation is made, a choice is presented, war is declared, a most singular treasure is sought by all, and a new empire is founded with tooth and claw.
Chapter 1: The Delegation
The figures were rodents! To my left was a Rattus Faber, wearing goggles, a blacksmith's apron, and an assortment of tools; to my right an unusually large guinea pig, wearing a helmet and breastplate reminiscent of nothing so much as the High Middle Ages.

The rat stepped forward first, and bowed.

"Welcome, Captain, to Rat Star Island. I am Edgar, Second Chief Engineer of the Third Rat Brigade. I invite you to avail yourself of food and fuel at our expense; the only cost to you is a choice."

The rat stepped back; at precisely the same moment, with what appeared to be the ease of long habit, the guinea pig scuttled forward, and made a declamatory chirp.

"Welcome, Captain, to the Isle of Cavia. I am Lady Augusta Devereaux Swinch of the Blackwater Swinches, Seneschal to our King Gracegnaw, First of His Name. I invite you to avail yourself of food and fuel at our expense; the only cost to you is a choice."

The two stood at attention, looking at me expectantly.
