The House of Embers

You are formally invited.

Dear Sir or Madam,

The House of Embers has long been a place of refuge during the cold, dark nights of the solstice when fearful things roam the countryside. However, the ungrateful have turned their backs on the house—believing themselves protected from the old ways by our modern developments of artificial light and heat. Now, though shuttered for years, there is talk that candlelight has reappeared in the old windows. And some say that slow, beguiling music can be heard coming from within.

The House of Embers has reopened for one exclusive evening to provide comfort and solace during the long nights of the solstice. Come in your best attire to feast, drink, dance, and explore.

While the night may be cold and terrible, long after the fire has sputtered and died, the embers burn on...
