Brannoc the Loon is led to Thrydingas, and the other Heroes, by the vision (which might have been drink inspired) of a Christian saint, while Cynderyn the Fae Changeling is sent by his Queen to find out more about Wulfwynn the Storyteller, who is 'respected by the Fae' after the good turn she did Selkies in the last 2-shot. Meanwhile, Sadhbh the Celtic Mystic is torn between the burden of her pride in serving the Old Gods, and the debt she owes Woden the Allfather for his help. There's hospitality before Lord Sidwyll's hounds draw attention to a thinning in the walls of reality, a demonic presence, and 'certainty' that it could be 'drowned'. Then a demon erupts from a well and Brannoc takes more credit for Christ than Sadhbh thinks proper. The heroes head into the night in search of answers and find an unholy bog and a sinkhole before ... a rescuer who needs rescuing ...

With discretion the better part of valour the three retreat to consider their options and give Wulfwynn a chance to treat their wounds. There's a dead centurion offering insight, the spirits give Sadhbh another chance, and the mysterious estuary offers visitors who favour music. Then ... a pommel restored, a cohort granted their rest, and regular offerings begin again ...
