S4E14 – The Simonside Duergar

The Simonside Duergar

Beware traveller! For Northumberland’s Simonside Hills are the setting for this week’s tale. Those rugged crags are thick with evil, evil creatures who want nothing more than to lure you to your doom. Fear not! Alasdair Beckett-King is here to warn of of their tricksy ways, while James Shakeshaft looks on, scornfully.

Hear how a Shakeshaft-type spent a miserable night in a horrible little cottage, while an ABK-esque sceptic came a cropper in a bog. It’s all the work of the nastiest faerie-folk in the Unseelie Court.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
