Synopsis
Two hundred years earlier, timber from the Wassau Swamp in Poland, birthplace of the Heap, was used to build a giant sailing ship that eventually set sail for the New World. The evil Baron on board was involved in the slave trade and later turned to piracy. The Heap learns of this ship, still extant, centuries later, and seeks it out to destroy this Baron once and for all time.
