The Summer holidays are over, and we’re back!

What came before

At the celebration of the Britons’ victory over the Saxons, High King Uther Pendragon becomes obsessed with Ygraine, fairy wife to Gorlois of Cornwall. When Ygraine and her husband flee home, Uther declares war on Gorlois.

Gorlois sends his wife and children to Dun Tagyll, a fortress cut off from the mainland by a narrow bridge. He stays at Terrabil himself, hoping to draw Uther into a siege on the moor.
