Walking Away From Arcadia

That’s What Sidhe Said!

August 15, 2017

Elves, elves, elves! Join Victor and Simon today as we discuss the Sidhe, their place in Concordia and in storytelling Changeling, and some of their more often overlooked elements such as their trouble with linear time. We get into their roles in Court politics, their Houses, and their political Impulses. We also veer off into their origins in real world mythology, so buckle up -- one whole episode devoted to only one and a half kiths!


The readings from today’s conversation were “The Hosting of the Sidhe” by William Butler Yeats, and “Fool’s Luck: the Way of the Commoner”. The music from today’s conversation was LSD by Monplaisir.
