Brown Men of the Moors: the Hunters become the Hunted.

The Brown Men are on a mission: to take out anyone in mind to hunt, or otherwise harm, the wildlife who dwell in the borderlands between England and Scotland.

  1. I have had a few strange encounters in my life and I have a question. Is it possible that some of us have fairy or dwarven ancestry in our family lines. I ask this because I had a trance/dream conversation with a Dwarf once and he seemed like he was a relative and knew me quite well like a grandfather or older relative. He even had some of the same traits and mannerisms common on my father’s side of the family.
