The garden is a place where fertility and healing occur; the forest is where the untamed wilderness confuses and sometimes destroys the protagonists.
Characters: The Captain and The Mountebank are strong characters in this setting. The Captain overcomes challenges, and gains strength by doing so. or has his wounds healed bu The Witch or occasionally the Bishop.
