The Nexus Anthology
At the southeastern edge of the city, where the Nexus and Cinnabar districts end at the walls, lies an ill-favoured part of the city which was until recently known as Aston. Prior to the Great Nexus Fire, this was a vibrant neighbourhood, with theatres and museums aplenty. But afterwards, the attention of the Council of Entities was more focused towards the centre of the city; and so, this area, which was particularly badly struck by the inferno, was left to languish. All of this would have been bad enough were it not for the sudden surge of hungry ghosts that swarmed out of the neighbourhood, ghosts which were somehow hardier than the rest of their ilk, and far more difficult to put down.
