There are five main courts operating in the frontier region of the province of New York.
The Black Court
A circus of emotion-spirits; fear, confusion, passions, hatred and others. Also concerned with borders and transitions.
The Black Man - A figure from folklore and superstition often associated with witchcraft, Satan or The Outsider.
Branches Crimson and Twisted
Bloody, primal nature spirits. They respect strength and appropriate obeisance.
Red Roots Tangled - Doesn't care for man-made things. At war with Bone White Claws of Steel.
A court with strange rules, even for spirits. They like complicated compacts and contracts that allow them to claim your soul.
Bone White Claws of Steel - Born of colonisation, the spirit of taming the land, harvesting and industry
The Awakener - A spirit of zeal and religiousity, created by the Christian revitalisation of recent years.
The Glorious Mask of Silver - A creation of artifice and industry, with a brood of craft spirits. Also covers conceptual concerns like material, greed, lies, wealth. Resident in/around Albany.
