c/w insect-like envoy

“Lilylium was the second. Envoy born before there was Embrace, before there was Alamire. In many ways we were lucky that it was the Jubilant that faced them, even if it was to be in the labyrinth they’d made their hunting grounds.“

Lilylium comes. The envoy’s forces, arranged around the Winter’s Lodge, move in to attack. They mean to take the gall for themselves.

The various allies inside the lodge can do little but attempt to buy enough time – to move the lodge’s inhabitants and the gall beyond Lilyium’s reach.

The Jubilant Maybe face Lilylium themselves. They mean to distract the ancient envoy, to draw their attention away from the lodge. Little do the Jubilant know that the gall is actually in their midst, carried inside Oken’s body.

~~ PEOPLE ~~

Foible: A former member of the Ginnels, a protest prepper. Killed by the Swifts on the night of the earthquake.

Midrib: One of Atrium’s dodgers, who sells the scrap, trinkets and treasures they find in the Castings. Ash’s pal.

Lilylium: An ancient and powerful envoy, rumoured to have survived Caerdroia. Seems desperate to claim the Gall and has allied with some of Embrace’s most powerful to do it.

Renna: A former Dodger. Joined Roan’s gardens after she found the strange caves beneath Atrium during the first earthquake.

Rhian Fetch-Grimoire: A keen-eyed member of the Shepherds of the Roil. Ivar’s long-lost sister.


The Winter’s Lodge: A group of weavers and spirits who call the lodge their home. They provide a halfway-house to those who need it, largely ghosts new to the Cut.

~~ PLACES ~~

The Cut: A ghostly echo of Embrace. Caerdroia’s labyrinth unspooled into unknowable maze. A broken assortment of bismuth lined tunnels that runs over, under and parallel to the physical city.
