An ex-druid down on his luck.
Some people spend New Years Eve alone
Some with family

When a Templar Knight hires Dunn to look into a simple Possession & Entering, Dunn understands it’s more than just a simple job. From pacts with ancient spirits to gods created by committee, it’ll be a miracle if Dunn can keep his skin intact on this case, let alone keep his soul.
“A jigger of rum, half lime, teaspoon of rich brown sugar.
Let the sour hit the roof of the mouth, the burn take the throat, the sugar smooth it out.
Soak it all in.
It’s going to be one of those days.”
