Deadglass Seattle by Teresa Grasseschi


Deadglass Seattle is a gritty, alternate universe where two shapeshifter races fight in secret over the Gate to the Land of the Dead. Artist Teresa Grasseschi drew up an awesome map and character illustrations.

Deadglass SeattleBallard: Scandinavian neighborhood north of the Ship Canal founded by Sven Norgard and his Norse followers.

Fremont: Artist neighborhood favoring rebellion, giant trolls, and Lenin statues.

Queen Anne: Elegant Kivati neighborhood on a hill just south of the Ship Canal, named for the Queen Anne style architecture that predominates

Capitol Hill: Old neighborhood on a hill east of Downtown. Settled by early millionaires and lumber barrons. Mansions on Millionaires’ Row wired for both gas and electric.

Pioneer Square: Oldest neighborhood in the city found just south of Downtown. Was rebuilt in brick around the turn of the century after the Great Seattle Fire leveled the wooden buildings. Very haunted.


Immortal, soulless dragon shifters led by the charismatic Sven Norgard. His seat of power is the Scandinavian enclave of Ballard, just to the north of the Ship Canal. Regent Norgard owns half the city, including the mayor, and his business empire extends across the Pacific Northwest.
