Spirits that later break these oaths and prove disloyal are hunted relentlessly and destroyed for their treachery. As Soldiers of a Heavenly deity, it is the lodge’s duty to do no less. It is common for spirits in Endless Moon territory to be cowed and fearful, wary of breaking their promises for fear that the werewolves will judge them ignoble and traitorous. Often the Shadow has all the ambience of a meat locker in a Mafia hideout. The Shadow is clean of taint — often eerily so — because the spirits fear to sully it.
All was well. The decommission and inevitable disuse of the highway, however, set the Shadow’s tenuous balance on a path to decay. The road’s prosperity was falling away piece by piece, and with it came the madness of spirits. The breaking of the highway lead to the breaking of Mother Road — her spirit split into many personalities, some lazy and fickle, others wild with wrath. The Forsaken found their job a thousand times harder than it had been when the road was healthy, but their pride stopped them from banding together and mending what was broken.
