Hm? A couple thousand men debarked would require - what - 20 ships with sailors? Where in Prax would one get wood for 20 ships?

For that matter, where did the lunars get sailors for 20 ships? They have no real navy and certainly no navy that knows how to sail on an ocean, as opposed to a river. Perhaps they were coast-huggers? Or, perhaps they hired ships that converged at Conflu to pick up troops?
