No tale truly begins or ends, Humphrey Locke; there is but the weaving of one thread with another, an ever-growing tapestry that is Life. From your earliest memories, your life has been entwined with that of your grandmother’s, Persephone. Through her lessons more than from any other source has come your understanding of the weave of existence’s web.
In ancient days the Wyck guided the folk of these Isles through the trials of life. With much of their roles and duties stolen by the modern era, they are among us still, and Persephone is just such a practitioner of the most venerable of Ways. At her feet you earned the secret tongue of this sacred craft and speak it with ever-growing fluency. Under Persephone’s watchful gaze, you hope some day to become a powerful witch.
But there are trials to be endured before such things can come to pass. Your village church, St. Aidan’s was a site of Goddess-worship long before the Nailed God made his mark here and your family has watched over the site ever since it came to the region centuries ago. Now the church is threatened by the growing sprawl of Manchester’s Ringway airport. Unless you and your grandmother can rally support soon, the stones of St. Aidan’s will soon be nothing more than dust and rubble beneath a growing blanket of asphalt.
