A tale of the Morrigan, a Vision-Quest and the Lay of Brighid
In this tale we hear about the old Shannachie, Laoidheach, who visits a clan to bring them news. He is encouraged by a lively young woman to tell tales of the Old Gods. So he tells her all he knows of the Morrighan and takes her on a Vision Journey. Afterwards, she asks him to teach her the Lay of Brighid.

Promo - Kirins
by James Priest
Kirins: The Spell of Noan
A race of tiny, magical beings lives on Earth today. They dwell in elaborate tree homes and mysterious underground sanctuaries. Because of an ancient dispute, however, humans are unaware of their hidden civilization.
They are kirins.
For thousands of years they lived in peace. But a deadly menace now threatens their existence. A party of daring explorers, led by the wise magician Speckarin, is sent on trained ravens to destroy an evil lurking a continent and an ocean away. Failure of this mission would mean death to the voyagers and the entire kirin race. But their success will depend on aid from a truly unexpected source, human beings.
Fly with these adventurers and witness today's world as it has never before been seen. You'll find yourself looking to the skies for this mystical race of beings, because maybe, just maybe . . .
