Incarnate Glossary

In INCARNATE, there are a lot of unusual words and concepts. I’ve compiled a small, spoiler-free glossary. If you’d like something added to this page, drop me a note and I’ll see what I can do.

Data console – A computer, containing mostly library archives.
Heart – The white city in the middle of Range.
Midrange Lake – A lake just south of Heart.
Newsoul – A soul in their first lifetime.
Nosoul – A derogatory name for newsouls.
Oldsoul – A soul who’s been reincarnated.
Quindec – A period of fifteen years. Also, the fifteenth birthday.
Range – The land humans have made safe. Everything beyond is controlled by other creatures.
Rangedge Lake – A lake at the southern edge of Range.
Rededication of souls ceremony – A ceremony celebrating soulmates. Everyone in Range wears a costume to a party and the two soulmates must find each other to prove their love.
Soul Night – The spring equinox of the Year of Souls.
Stef’s Everything Device (SED) – A small device meant for communicating, image-capturing, and music-playing.

The lovely Safari Poet generously took the time to make printable cards for the glossary, that way you can keep it tucked inside your book if you’d like. If you want to download one (or both!) of these, just right click and “save image as.”
