Welcome to the Shadow Wake Emporium.

On occasion, our curatorial team retrieve stolen livestock from smugglers — usually in the form of hatchlings. As Earth has become a popular transit hub for such contraband, and with recent cutbacks in the Administrarium for the Cessation of Trans-Galactic Creature Transportation and Sale, the local office is being used as a test-station for an economic study: The ACTGCTS has reached a compromise with smuggling factions, regulating the transport and sale of a range of creatures, pre-approved by the Administrarium heads and in accordance with local laws. A profit split in return for creature registration, with the added bonus of a full pardon for any smuggler in compliance with the scheme, means there is now a small stock of creatures available for registered sale to the people of Earth.

Our Texts are an ongoing collection of literature that has been collated from various archives scattered throughout the galaxies. Updated when new works arrive from our curatorial team.

The collection has been scanned, in some cases translated, and replicated for the benefit of an English-speaking, human readership. The texts available at the Emporium are copies of the originals which are held by the Administrarium.

Returns and exchange details
We can't refund you if you decide you don't like your purchase once it has arrived. We'll try to provide the best and most detailed descriptions and images we can to help avoid this.

Packaging will be appropriate, but if your purchase arrives damaged, send us a clear picture and let us know what the problem is. We'll replace your item if we can.

If you aren't sure or want additional information or images of a product, please get in touch before purchasing anything.

Digital downloads cannot be cancelled or refunded, but should you have any problems with the downloaded file, get in touch with a detailed description of the problem.

We cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss cause by downloaded files.

Please note that all return and exchange postage costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
The Emporium uses Etsy's payment system. On the whole, refunds aren't a thing unless an item is destroyed in transit, where a claim will be made against the shipping company. All efforts will be made to package shipments appropriately. Read descriptions carefully BEFORE purchase as cancellations may result in trade bans. If in doubt, contact the Ambassador.
Shipping is included in the purchase price for the UK and reflective of postage and packaging costs overseas. All items are sent by tracked services of some kind.

We'll try to send your purchase within 3 working days – if spacetime fails us, the Ambassador will be in touch.

No additional insurance is provided unless at the request of the buyer. Any taxes, import duties or fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

You'll get a shipping confirmation email once your item is in the post.

Please allow 10 days for delivery in the UK and 28 days overseas before contacting us, but if your item doesn't arrive, please get in touch as we can't have some of these creatures roaming free...

Digital downloads will be available as soon as payment has cleared.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from the Emporium, contact the Ambassador, or otherwise use our services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information We Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to us), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information (for a custom order for example), if you contact us directly.

Why We Need Your Information and How We Use It

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide our services, such as when we use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving our services. We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest to improve our services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. We use your information as necessary to comply with our obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about our customers is important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. We share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you our services and comply with our obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If we sell or merge our business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce our agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of our customers, or others.

Data Retention

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. These rights are described below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Aside from exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, Rhiannon Tate is the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact her via Etsy’s messenger service which can be accessed directly from our shop.

If you wish to access, correct or delete personal information held by Etsy, you may contact Etsy at for assistance, or send a request directly to Etsy.

Care instructions

Each creature has a care instructions manual. For most, they can be surface cleaned with a soft damp (not wet) cloth.
