The story continues:
The book blurb for the Zaftan Troubles is: An alien mining ship discovers a planet loaded with rare earth minerals. The aliens, known as zaftans, plan to fill their ship with the mined minerals. Unfortunately, the planet is inhabited by intelligent beings: humans, dwarfs, elves, halflings and other fantasy races.
But what could possibly go wrong with a simple mining operation on a planet with primitive natives?
For Book 4, the book blurb reads: Four high-ranking ministers are dispatched to the rural area. Two are intent on achieving peace and two have other agendas. The ministers arrive just in time to observe a crucial confrontation between MacDrakin’s ragtag forces and the technologically advanced aliens.
