|Battle of Seapress
|Part of the Reunification War
The battle of Seapress was a conflict between the High Empire and the people of Seapress. It was Varion Crestmar's first battle and the start of the Reunification War. Using far inferior ships, he managed to convince the enemy he intended to surrender and join them when first approaching, then suddenly turned on them. He did this by invoking a rarely used article of the law that let him take over the ship he was on. This battle was later used multiple times as a simulation for Dennison Crestmar to fight.
