The Grand Serkonan Guard postcard[]

Cecelia Havelock,
110 Drapers Ward,
Dunwall, The Isles.
The reward of a life well lived in keeping with the Seven Strictures is the end of existence! The peace of non-being. Only those who turn from the Seven Strictures risk an endless existence adrift in the Void, the dark sky without stars. The cold lifeless ocean that surrounds us all and threatens to devour the earth and sky an all things in between.
–Overseer Hughes

Alexander Wakefield
26 Rudshore District
Gristol, The Isles.
Things are about to change in Karnaca. I feel it. My husband's been trying to sell our woodworking shop. If we can, we’re packing up the kids and relocating to Morley. Gristol's in chaos, with everyone fighting over the Empress, and Tyvia's too cold.

Addermire Institute postcard[]

Dunwall, Gristol
Empire of the Isles
I've seen cities go bad before. Smelled the rot. So have you, fifteen years ago in Dunwall. Did you miss it, that year that made you who you are? Don’t deny it. Rats in the cradle, black smoke rising from burning bodies, an entire city crying out. Now it’s happening again. Welcome back. Welcome home.
