  • Maven and Sporall are in high spirits as they attend Jinsy's Firelock Festival, but the mood soon sours when they stop by to see Madame Astralina. The local astrologer specialises in rat bum-reading and she's got some dire news to share with poor Maven: he's going to be assassinated.
  • An environmentalist threatens to scupper Maven's project for a new bridge in the shape of his nose.
  • Time is of the essence as Maven races against the clocks to get his accounts done in time. The only problem is, Jinsy's ink-addicted accountants have gone feral, forcing him to strike a deal with the Chief Accountant involving his daughter, Berpetta.
  • Maven is shocked to discover that he's been wearing a makeshift woggle and sets out to retrieve the official one from former Arbiter, Roley Jenkins. Obstacles arise, however, in the form of his wife Joan and a pesky parrot.
  • While Maven prepares for an interview with the editor of Glove Hygiene Monthly, the beard-growing contest is disrupted by an attacker with a taste for facial hair.
  • Maven becomes the highlight of Jinsy as he tries to fix a desolate tessellator, meanwhile Sporall discovers a new form of entertainment.
  • After a banned rock band plan to break the Arbiter's rules, Maven himself tries to foil their plans.
  • Maven's annual Arbiter ceremony goes catastrophically wrong when the historic wig used to crown him suddenly becomes reanimated.
  • Party pooper Maven is dreading the arrival of forbidden festival Nacken, so much so that he's being extra vigilant about everyone taking their nightly bye pills.
  • The Great He orders Maven to dispose of a resident when the island population exceeds its limit of 791. Favourite for the chop is Jinsy's oldest inhabitant, the romper suit-wearing Robunce Barnatty, but an unexpected revelation changes everything.
  • Maven and Sporall are tasked with the historic installation of the first tesselator on Old Jinsy, a tribal island covered in brambles.
  • Maven embarks on a journey in treacherous winter conditions accompanied by a former teacher, who torments him on the way.
  • The islanders are married off in the wedding lottery. Maven enters Sporall into the draw.
  • Decency levels may have plummeted from Mildly Vulgar to Severely Smutty across the island, but Maven is refusing to let his slip.
  • Maven is convinced cupboard salesman Eric Dunt is their deity. Sporall is unconvinced.
  • Maven attempts to cheat in order to join Jinsy's Intellectual Elite.
  • Preferring crackpot theories to common sense, Maven is convinced that the island is going to be overthrown by a group of subversive residents communicating via coded textile messaging. His evidence? The number of islanders wearing novelty knitwear.
