Holiday snaps 3

More neolithic marvels today - this time, Avebury ring. Apart from the undeniable impressiveness of the size of the stones, and the no-tech of those who built the henge and erected the stones, I was amazed at how much of the village is within the circle... and an A road goes right across it. I couldn't help thinking this might make a great scenario setting for Gareth the Grot's witchfinder escapades: what foul things, real or imagined, might creep across from faeire to torment and beguile the locals foolish enough to believe they could stamp out the old ways with a fancy new house and grazing their sheep in between the stones?


  1. Haha! Funny you should think that, as this weekend I have been working on modifying 'Crom!' to use for my Witchfinder games. A stone circle - though probably not quite impressive in size as Avebury - is definitely on my scenery 'to-do' list. Looks like your holiday was a blast!

    1. It's going well so far, thank you, Gareth. I'll be keeping an eye on your 'Crom!' conversion; sounds intriguing!
