"Something wicked this way comes,
across the dark rooftops of the slums
Set your wards to protect from it
or you will die like a bloody git."
...is a cautionary tale often recited in pubs around the little port village of Purgamen where our tale takes place. A tale of two orphans growing up in a magical kingdom and their struggles with things that go bump in the night.
On one such bumpy night they experience an encounter with a dread succubus that did not count on quick wit of Samel (and his poor constitutions but lovely tastiness) and Nathaniel, who holds a dark secret that threatens to overwhelm him.
