Upon A Summer's Day in Albion | World Anvil

Upon A Summer's Day

In the immediate aftermath of Old As The Hills in August 1940, Gabriel Edgarton has choices to make. There's a question he must say 'yes' to, no matter how much he'd rather not.   Answering that question brings him deep into the mysteries of the land magic, wide-ranging Council politics, and the question of what he's made for. He has people who love him, who are glad to support him, but he must make the final choices himself. The rest of the world hasn't stopped with demands, as Britain and Albion are in the midst of the Blitz, with all that means.
