BLOODY MATINGThe legend of Woebegone Mountain is not entirely clear. Some of the folktales say that there was a manor house belonging to the Pomeranian Dukes, others speak of numerous murdered, whose bodies were put to a rest on the top of the hill. But who knows, maybe both legends have a grain of truth?
So it is a bit my own licencia poetica and a slight reference to my short story "The Moth" (pl. ćma), which appeared in the online magazine Creatio Fantastica. If anyone would be interested in reading it (it explores the themes of the seventeenth century and the Duchy of Pomerania) then "Moth" is available online, but only in the Polish language. For better reading, I recommend a great video in the cover photo of Krzysztof Wroński Artwork, which was realized by my multi-skilled Natalia. The soundtrack comes from my dark ambient side-project trans-syberia.
RED MANOR'S LEGEND"Was the murderer a deceitful guest? Or maybe it was the host, having broken the sacred law of hospitality by quietly assassinating those he had invited into his home under false pretences? No one knows this. No one remembers. But it is said that at the top of the Woebegone Mountain near Agedale where in ancient times a lavish manor stood, restless bodies lay galore."
