    Summary

    When Caduceus met Mollymauk Tealeaf, it was not the way other people imagine meeting someone. No hello would you like some tea. No luxury of face and voice and touch. Caduceus met Mollymauk the way soul friends from a past life pass on the street as strangers. A fleeting, powerful impression of loyalty and bitterness and fear and deep, fierce love. The lingering scent of nag champa.

     

     

    Caduceus Clay is a little bit in love with a dead man.

    Summary

    Essek knows how his story ends. There is a place in Rexxentrum where executions are carried out, wooden steps leading up to a wooden platform. There hangs a noose, swaying lightly in northern wind, while polished cobblestones shine bright in golden light.  

    There will be birds, Essek imagines, and when the lever is pulled and gravity takes hold of him one last time, he hopes they take flight.

    Summary

    Vex puts down the cup, and then notices the letter on the table. “What’s that?”

    “Haven’t opened it, but my best guess is that it’s from Father.”

    She reaches for the envelope, flips it over, and snorts inelegantly. “Of course it is,” she says dryly. “The wax seal’s got the crest of Syngorn College on it. He hasn’t talked to us in almost ten years – how on earth did he know we were here?”

    “My best guess? He heard a pair of twin adventurers blew up a building in the east last week, and figured it was us.”

    ~

    Explorers-for-hire Vax'ildan and Vex'halia Vessar receive a request to track down an elusive artifact, and find themselves tangled in events more complex than they could imagine.

    No prior knowledge of His Dark Materials required; all necessary concepts are explained in the story itself.

    Summary

    Walking through Exandria with part of your soul on display makes it all the more important to know someone's got your back. The twins have always relied on one another, and their daemons, but they never expected to find even a single soul like the seven that are brought together under the banner of Vox Machina.

    She doesn't succeed.
