Artur is given to the Deep One on the eve of Imbolc, buried beneath the frozen earth in a ship-shaped casket and bound in thread. For Hild, the undertaker's daughter, it could be just any other day. But it is not. Artur was a dear friend, and his brother, Godric, seems to believe that there was something more suspicious behind Artur's sudden demise. To make things worse, Wemba, a hapless bard who has more flamboyance than talent, has managed to anger the local mobsters. The three must find out what happened to Artur and then get the hell out of Mudford Sock before they find themselves set tied to a sinking ship themselves. --- Written for ONC 2020. Prompt 26.
