In the 1750s... The Ancien Regime of noble, romantic France...
A kingdom of luxury and opulence, for the Nobility and increasing desperation for the
A Marquis of exceptional reputation for controversy decides he is bored with the
humdrum of normal life and uses all the connections, favor and monies he dares spend
to have a 'festival' that expresses the freedom the Enlightenment strives for in the
excess absolute. For a limited time he and his guests are free. Of every single law set by
the Holy Church and by Crown and common law. In his castle there will be total freedom,
save only his command. It is a festival that the best of the regime are invited, the most
indulgent Nobility, some of the new Rich, a few of the best artists and radicals and of
course the best of the classes that serve them in every manner especially carnal.
As the festival begins and a powerful storm rages outside the castle, an unexpected guest
arrives. The Holy Church has sent one of its own to fill a seat expected to be empty and
they have sent an Inquisitor. Aside from shock this would mean nothing for the Marquis
has secured an indulgence so blatant it threatens another schism akin to the one that
inspired Martin Luther years back. A normal man of Clergy, even the feared Inquisition
would either be a flower on the wall, futileypraying for their salvation - or himself be
swayed by temptation, the pardon and indulgence applying to himself as a guest.
But Dominick of the Order Malleus - a man who hunts the Supernatural made manifest is
not there to merely witness. And as he is known to his chagrin as "Dominick
Wytchburner" he is no ordinary man!
