Tamar Water

With many of thier warrior lords far across the Tamar Water, the folk of Kernow looked to the affairs of the West. Like the winds sweeping down from the mountains they felt less restrained, less beholding than before that noble departure. It was as if they had become the free folk of former times, times so distant that they were known only in beery songs and the whispers of grandmothers.

While news of distant disputes drifted across the Tamar Water or  floated in from Brittany, it was the ghostly messenger, traipsing across the western sky, that captured their attention. The learned at Glasneth in Penry called it a comet and named it among the Signa et Portenta – the signs and wonders.

There was much speculation among the people of the Kernow as to its meaning (or – possibly – its intent) but no one divined the reality.
