Those Filipinos, man! Whilst Toowoomba, for now, appears to be once again firmly in Henry Parkes’ (of Australia) grip, they’ve instead directed their attention to the nearby Hawaiian city of Kaneohe. With three ranged ships, a lack of Hawaiian defense and a trireme on the way, it seems like another sure conquest for the Philippines. It’s definitely worth mentioning that the largely overlooked nation is bringing some real intrigue and gumption into the Oceanic theatre. It’s a lot of fun to watch.
