Stephen reports on a battle twixt Good and Evil in the Welsh Valleys…
On the border of Shropshire and Denbigh there is a lonely valley that is known locally as ‘Cwm Gwyn’ (White Valley). It has long been said that it is a haunted place. At the head of the valley there is a single stone tower – the White Tower.
For services overseas, fighting against the French, King Richard II gave the land to Sir Ursus ‘The Bear’ FitzArkus. All that was left was for this worthy knight to explore his new holdings and find out exactly what lay at the heart of the mystery of Cwm Gwyn.
This was a game of Dragon Rampant. Each side had 24 points.
Sir Ursus had with him two contingents of billmen, a contingent of crossbowmen, and his household knights.
Slowly they made their way down the wooded valley. It was only when they came to a mountain stream, the Afon Ddu, they heard the sound of a warhorn.
It would seem that rumours of a haunting would be more accurate than anyone dared imagine…
