The Hank & Jordan & Tenzer Coporation has diversified quite a bit since its founding in 390 GE. Turning into a lucrative business, they have reclaimed some of the old Hank & Jordan's cooper works and shipyards, opened profitable trading routes across the Corsic Ocean, and even published a series of story books called "Ferry Tales of the Ocean Belt", which boasts twenty-four large volumes by now and a roughly five-thousand issue story magazine called "Silfs of the Sea" has been in circulation around the Corsic Ocean and even the Great Land since 1304 GE, coming out monthly pretty much ever since.This magazine, "Silfs of the Sea", a loose anthology of only occasionally connected stories about the mysterious Stand-in Loan Ferries that work under the auspices of HJT part-time, has been published by the HJT Gazette, which was originally founded in 920 GE to circulate business news and job opportunities throughout the Corsic Ocean. The newspaper quickly gained popularity in the decades after its founding, expanding to ever further locations and eventually diversifying into general advertisement and the publishing of short stories and interviews, which at some point led to the creation of the HJT Gazette Monthly Digest magazine and the "Silfs of the Sea" magazine much later.

The Storm Winds of Glazglubin
"There's a monster in every man, boy. Within me, there is a host, and one day, it'll be yours to command." Too often these days, Kenji's mind turns to the words of his accursed father. When he fled the Old Country, he thought he had left the monsters behind, but now he sees them every day in the eyes of his friend and mentor. His world is about to crumble in a spasm of eldritch magic, and though he can see the face of his undoing so clearly in his nightmares, deep down, he knows that the first blow has already been struck.
As the tendrils of a soul plague lay claim on Aqualon's oldest and most powerful magocracy, the Lord of Wind, Kenji Sokolow, is cast down from his high tower, pressed to rally whatever forces he can find. But first, he has to survive...
