Story

Imitating humans in constructing houses and large ships, tritons quickly became a trading folk and their agricultural villages flourished on the river bank of Ie.

Triton merchants are known for being able to provide extremely rare goods, such as dried starlight kelp seeds from Ie’s riverbed. Humans are willing to pay great sums for that, giving the triton merchants the incentive to search for it, extract and provide it to their markets. As a result, this trade endangered the survival of the plant.

A group of tritons, which the governing order calls “Separatists”, dissatisfied with the commercial policy of their fellow citizens and afraid of the outer world’s influences, started protesting and sabotaging the merchants’ trade of the sacred to them, kelp seed. Of course, there are those who try to take advantage of the whole situation and, in secrecy, exploit both sides for their own benefit...
