Discover a new world


Within these pages you'll find a collection of oddities, both the characters and the stories they propagate. Tales from preternatural beings both good and evil, whispers of arcane absurdities twisting logic to their own ends, tragedies of regular people gutted by misfortune and swept along without even a grain of hope for change. Sense is lost and normalcy is abandoned as the players cling to their twisted role, no more privy to it than you or I, but once the dance has begun there's no stopping it. Every misstep and every achievement, played out all for the joy, or even dismay, of those who look on.
