In the Light of a Faded World + PDF

Being curious about the gonefolk is like sucking on death’s neck

Many generations have passed since the great disaster. Earth is growing, consuming all the gonefolk built. This reclaiming created many new spaces for creatures to venture into seeking new homes. Spaces the gonefolk took for their wants barring small creatures. The gonefolk’s machines may no longer work but their damaging effects remain. 

Making your way will not be easy, little ones. You must be brave. You will encounter things you do not understand...

...but, travel carefully little ones, the gonefolk’s spirits remain trapped in their massive, tiled stone dens.

As do the roving gangs of cats.

Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
