"Snuff Fairies" is a short story set on the pseudo-medieval world of Venari. Venari is a place where just about everything wants to eat you. Helmund started his first job in the Falconwald Silversnuff Mill about a month ago where he does little else but sweep the floors. One day, the mill's owner, Mr. Merryweather, gives Helmund a new job to do. At first, the job seems mundane, but it soon becomes clear it's a front for something far more deadly. As he embarks on his first nightshift, Helmund realises just how much he has been kept in the dark.
