In the year VII, 183 (2483 IC), the Corsair captains Lokhir Fellheart and Dastan Coldeye challenged one another to a contest of plunder. Each chose a province of the Empire -- Ostland in Fellheart's case, and Nordland in Coldeye's -- and had a year to claim whatever bounty they could. Coldeye swiftly took the lead, thanks largely to the presence of an Empire fleet, its holds bursting with stolen Nehekharan treasures, at anchor in Debneitz when his Corsairs descended. Fellheart was not so easily bested, however, and drove his crews mercilessly until there was neither village nor town in northern Ostland that had not learned to fear said-crews. Nonetheless, a year's end approached, Fellheart still lagged behind, so he did what any Dark Elf does in his situation -- he cheated.[1a]

Fellheart sent word to King Akkateph of Zandri, informing him of the stolen Nehekharan treasures that now lay in Coldeye's possession. Akkatep's reaction was everything Fellheart could have wished for, and soon, Coldeye's Black Ark was pursued, harried, and ultimately sunk, by a fleet of Zandrian war dhows. Coldeye survived that battle, with with his vessel gone, and his treasure taken by Akkateph's fleet, had to cede the contest. At the next high moon, he and his immediate family were sacrificed to Mathlann and Loec, for Fellheart knew full well that his victory could have been achieved without the consent of the god of the sea and the god of deception.[1a]
