Pickle on the Nightmare Wall

She crawled out mines into squalid streets only to run into the bright fanged lights of the clubs to find the dustbowl trap that is the end of the world. Scraping a living in a forgotten corner of the world only defended for its dirt where people aren't people she survives.

One of the free towers will take her if she can pay. Gunther's Guns is the legend of old still holding back the tide. Maybe if she can survive the wall, she can hope for a better future, she has the capital to stake, but can she survive the world of shadows and iron.
