The Black Goat
Within one of the last remnants of that great, ancient forest that once blanketed England squats the Black Goat Inn. A little off the beaten track, or any track for that matter, it is troubled infrequently by passing trade. Instead it provides a simple hospitality to the simple folk who eke a living from the land or from the forest itself.
On wild nights, when the woods are shunned by all decent people, the Black Goat Inn is ablaze with light and life and the walls ring with songs long-forgotten in more civilised parts.
Tonight is one such night and the locals have gathered to raise a tankard and their voices in a defiant refrain, a bulwark against the shadows that creep and steal amongst the dancing trees.
But tonight the familiar jokes and arguments will go unspoken. Unbeknownst to the patrons, strangers are approaching the Black Goat, bringing with them their queer, modern ways. And, upon their heels follows something else, something altogether older and more dangerous.....
