From publisher blurb:
When the teenage daughter of a local Hermetic mage dies in a terrible accident, the mourning father goes to unconscionable lengths to see his child again. The sheer hubris and potency of his willwork call down immense Paradox, driving him into permanent Quiet. It falls to the players to deal with the repercussions of this newborn Marauder’s actions, contain the damage brought about by his wild magics, and ensure that the Sleepers are kept safe from the ensuing magickal mayhem. Depending on the Sect the characters belong to, their personal paradigm, and their morality, their approach to the problems presented in this story could be radically different. No mage, regardless of politics or belief structure is likely to ignore the threat presented by a Marauder.
A Short Story of Love, Loss, Grieving, and Pain.
