Yes, Master Vuong Manh, I am interested.
Please tell us more about it.
What was the Great Company?
Why were they taking vengence?
Was this incident well-known later in the Period?

Also, as a personal aside, did you have any trouble registering
a name that means "king"?  I'm guessing that you didn't, since
my wife didn't have any trouble registering Malkah as her name.
