Honnoh is a town on the northern continent which featured in the lost chronicles of Port of Shadows. It is in the same province of the Lady's Empire as Aloe. At some point, the Rebel built an extensive tunnel complex underneath Honnoh that served as a major logistical base at the time the Black Company was garrisoned in Aloe to pacify the province.

Port of Shadows[]

After the defeat of Rebel commander Cannon Shear's force, the Black Company began a series of roving patrols to root out other Rebel cells. A patrol led by the Lieutenant visited Honnoh on several occasions and discovered the tunnel complex without alerting the Rebels there, and the Company quietly prepared for an offensive to smash their main force while it was still assembling, which would ruin their summer campaign before it began.

Croaker was still making his way to Honnoh with his apprentice Edmous Black when the Honnoh offensive occurred, and could only gather accounts of the battle second-hand. A scout force led by Two Dead assaulted the town at dawn as a distraction, while the Taken Mischievous Rain exploited the chaos along with the Company's other wizards to inflict significant damage. Company cavalry encircled Honnoh and captured fleeing Rebels. Company casualties were low, as the Rebel had been caught completely by surprise and had no magic support of its own. The Rebel was so thoroughly routed that it created an internal schism between the four surviving Resurrectionist leaders, who only escaped by running as soon as the fighting began; the Resurrectionists assumed that the Company had learned of the Honnoh base through a traitor, and this traitor could only have been one of the four survivors. This sparked a deep mutual mistrust between them, and prevented the Rebel from recovering for the remainder of the Black Company's stay in Aloe.

The battle also resulted in the capture of four copies of Tides Elba, leading to the Company focusing its efforts on rounding up all other copies in order to prevent one of them from becoming the Port of Shadows and giving birth to the Dominator's reincarnation.[1]
