 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)
To escape the Japanese invasion of Manchuria, the investigators secure passage to Zaoshou, the Island of Suffering, with the Yellow Serpent Fleet, a group of pirates who smuggle opium to the island. Among the pirates' prisoners is the Japanese war criminal Tsatoba, whom they intend to turn over to the Shen De (Deep Ones), but the man still has Hu Feng's burner. The shade of Guang Ying leads the investigators to the Portal of Shadows, where they realize that the sorcerer Says Fong Lee has fled to find the Necronomicon. However, just as they are making progress versus the sorcerer, the pirates fleet reaches Zoashou amidst a Japanese naval exercise.
