[Detail] The Fey's Home
A detail from my entry for the Guilds of Historica "Age of Mitgardia" challenge, for House Phase I.
Orri Ingvarson, Horgaard's herdsman, was a happy young lad.
Every summer since his coming-of-age, he would lead the small herd to the high mountain pastures. Up there, everything was quiet, everything was peaceful. He enjoyed being alone above the tree line, watching the clouds drift by of listening to the eagles' shriek.
This year was a special one : the old, decaying shed where he used to spend his nights and seek refuge during thunderstorms had been demolished. With the help of all the villagers, a new one had been built a short distance further.
And Orri felt there was something...odd with his new home. The floor seemed to clean itself. The dishes seemed to wash themselves. Flower bouquets seemed to appear out of thin air on the table. And his goat mil supply was depleting.
