April 1114

Harts and a selection of allies make a strike at Ditchit to create a holding point for the armies working to retake York. The village is discovered to be hiding dark secrets and making regular sacrifices to a powerful chimera. Those responsible are brought to justice and the creature is destroyed. Warwick and York are scouted but at the cost of the Harts losing Alwyn of the Hunters. A further rock attracting demonic interest is liberated and the Harts learn of a being known as The Mistress with the power to remove sorrow and pain from a mind and make it manifest. Bodily remains are found in the woods, appearing to be those of the loyal postman who appears to have swallowed his last cargo upon recognising danger ahead.
