From Brett Uren’s new mini comic ‘The Vale’ -
St. Mary’s Church in Aylesbury had a storied history, from the Civil War to the ancient earthen burial mound it was built upon.
But now under Elder rule and their dark enchantments, even the dead don’t get to retire.

De Crypt is the vale’s premier club for hackers, tinkerers and skull-dugging of all sorts. Service is provided by the ghosts and ghoulies of a hundred generations. Don’t show the Saxons your smartphone, it’ll just lead to confusion.
Sometimes, the odd loose Elder like Shugg does go in there for a skinful.
But you know, he’s harmless. He probably just staggered inside while chasing a tight-fitting pair of jeans…
