    The Hall of Song, Geoff before the Giants



    The Hall of Song, Geoff before the Giants

    Geoff is last home of the western Flan, those of the mountains and forests. In Geoff the people call themselves the Cydonn and Flan is the name that the outsiders, the Suel and Oeridians, use.

    Geoff is known to its people as the land of song and in the years before the coming of the Empire from the south and the horse-warriors from the north it was a bigger place. The Cydonn had lands further east and south and their tribal cousins, the Gortys and the Arteniens beyond that.

    But in those long-ago days already other people had carved out what they called 'kingdoms' and though the Suel and Oeridians called them Flan, they were not of Cydonns or their blood.

    All these songs were lost except among those of Geoff and scattered across the land were halls of song where the bards and more common minstrels would contest with each other, gather apprentices and keep the old songs alive. Before the giants came.

    Reminds me of the Welsh Eisteddfod tradition ... very fitting.
