The Fecund's Melancholy Daughter
The city is crumbling. Clouds over Nowy Solum have not parted in a hundred years. Gods have deserted their temples.

Then, screaming from the skies, a lone god reappears and a limbless prophet is carried through South Gate, into Nowy Solum, with a message for all: beyond the city, something ancient and monumental has come awake.
