- Nechronicles: Circus Extravagansicus
The Circus is coming to Necropolis and it will be bigger and louder than ever before. Or so General Pip Rickett hopes. Paulo Puck, the previous Ring Leader, met his Judgement before the last tour finished. Circus Extravagansicus has never reached a successful finale. The company need to see the final curtain fall.
- Nechronicles: Exodus
Necropolis is a city like no other, built into a valley on the banks of the mighty River Styx. Generations of departed souls have set up home in the underworld while they await their final Judgement. However the process has been slowed. Centuries have passed and the souls of mortals in the Overworld have clouded. It is not simply a case of ‘Good’ and ‘Bad’ anymore.
“Never let the elephant of ignorance derail your train of thought.”
