“Legend has it that every August people would gather around the tiny hamlet of Eastfolk to trade wares and stories. It was part harvest festival, part reunion for the thatchers, herdsmen, brewers and storytellers. People would meet here, between the lands of the folk from the north and the folk from the south, to learn new skills, sing songs, and meet old friends.”
