Meet Marwood: Jobbing journeyman magician in present-day London.
He can’t throw fireballs. Doesn’t get around on a broom. He doesn’t have a cool scar on his forehead.
But when he’s not getting hassle from master alchemists and artificers or drowning his sorrows as a result, you might just find him doing what he can to sort out the crap overlooked by the big city’s Worshipful Company of Magicians.
Regarding profanity, violence and scenes of a sexual nature, please note:
Wizards are as foul mouthed as the average Londoner;
The playing out of scenes of violence is perhaps less frequent in magical society than might be imagined (but not unknown); and finally…
If there were some gratuitous sex to be going on it’s not happening on a regular basis to Marwood (but he really would be game if he had any say in it).
You may now continue to:
A GOBLIN MARKET IN SOHO – Wherein we meet Marwood on the trail of a gay Irish ballet dancer at risk of kidnap by something otherworldly… (okay, goblins).
BAD FAITH, UNCIVIL SOCIETY – In which a trip to a Slovakian coffee shop in North London sees Marwood up his neck in necromantic cultists…
PEOPLEWATCHING – Someone is about to use dark magic to assault or even kill some other patron in an East London greasy spoon cafe – at least according to the divination of the questionable mantic who’s sent Marwood in anyway. But if he’s right who’s the perpetrator and who the target?
