What is Glimpses?

 

Warda: Glimpses is an anthology of ‘short stories’ – one-shot adventures highlighting new and interesting tales of Ammingrad starring new players and new characters each week. The action of these Glimpses spans the ten years between Curiosities and Winds of Change.

 

Episode 1 – Year 4804 (concurrent with Curiosities)

During the riots in Amminheim of the “Shattered Night,” Sandir Chundhali searches for the missing Quillathe Sareine – and drums up a few allies to assist him with tracking her down: Felix Draem (Fairy sogger), Grettie Buschelcroft (Brownie spelunker) and Iggly Twitchwiggler III (legendary Gobbin information broker). What follows is an unexpected journey under hill and over sewage… with a lot of unexpected twists.

 

Episode 2 – Year 4807 (three years after Curiosities)

Alva Goldfinch finds herself stranded in Westhill in the outer Tenth Ward, in a farm town called Pembroke. At the train station she bumps into Derech Cirrendakar, a Janni Warden, here to investigate a possible smuggling ring. Incidentally joining them are two Ifriti bent on ghost-hunting at the nearby Appleton Orchard: the aging ex-orchestra conductor Jasper Scourche and his assistant, the young musical savant Damery Coal. But what is going on at Appleton Orchard? Is it ghosts, or something more sinister?

 

Episode 3 – Year 4810 (six years after Curiosities)

Leto Alexander Three and his brother Bardo Oswald Three run the reputable Championship Shipping out of Darklane in the Ninth Ward. Yenry Grenville, head of the Transportation Guild, comes to them with a very important job – to steal a piece of equipment from the magic Filtration Station #107. To succeed at this task would mean that humans could recreate a piece of mechanica that would put humans and fey on the same playing field – without magic. However, they need to find someone small enough to fit into the highly secure facility’s inner core… and it just so happens that a very young secret from Leto’s not-too-distant past has come calling in search of answers.

 

Episode 4 – Year 4813 (nine years after Curiosities)

Janni socialite and bally good fellow Percivius “Percy” Wooshire has found himself in a bit of a pickle. He’s engaged to be wed to the beautiful, competent, and rather oofy Lady Astrid Swent, the Greensmaster and head gardener to the Seelie in the First Ward, but dash it all – he’s started to fall in love with her, too. Fortunately, perhaps, Lady Astrid is simply agog – it’s the day after their engagement party, and her Seal, the stamp which the Dair himself bestowed on her in order to acquisition any and all necessary materials for her gardening work, is utterly and unavoidably MISSING! As fate would have it,  Embrilar Ardeo of the Hand & Eye and his wife Fenelle Yewen are houseguests at Lady Astrid’s, and Percy’s gentleman’s gentleman, the Fairy valet Tearworth, are ready to take the case. Oh, what a rummy situation!
