Often stories with a devil’s pact as their theme have the ill-fated hero offer his or her soul as a prize for such deal.
That is not the case in this very old folktale we chose to translate and adapt and now have the delight to share with you!
We invite you to sit back and enjoy this folktale from the Middle Ages colleted by Teófilo Braga!

Here’s one of the images we’re working on right now!

This one will accompany the next Portuguese Folktale we will soon release. It’s a very old medieval story and the version we got, though more recent, it’s still a doozy to translate.
As you can guess from the title though, it will involve knights, devils and… holy ladies?
It’s a mystery for now!

A ghoulish wedding

Many blessings for the Werewolf Knight and the Succubus Dame, may their life be long (if not eternal) and full of happiness.
After the groom accepts to wear the traditional cape and settle down, the bride also commits to retire from the succubi life to enjoy any and all phases of the moon together. Howling is optional.

This concludes our own StarTwo Inktober 2019 themed with Knights and Dames. What an adventure it has been!

Thank you to everyone that went on this journey with us. We look forward to your visits as we resume our usual posting.

Looking forward to Glory

With the banners of his people floating like wings, the young Knight smiled with hope.

Peace had finally been reached.

Getting old in style

With the weather getting nippier, Lord Half-elf doned his best fox pelt over his knightly armour.
Many say he has special powers that manifest when the new moon is high, others believe that he is no longer capable of casting magic as he is getting older.
All agree, however, that his reflexes are forever sharp due to his elven blood and that anyone would be foolish to challenge him for the crown.
And thus the kingdom stays secure.

Not bad for a rumour spread long ago by a prince that happened to only have been born with pointy ears…
