29 Faces in May; The Simonside Duergar

This is a local elf who lives exclusively in the Simonside Hills near Rothbury in Northumberland.  I have friends who live in their shadow, so on weekend visits the skinny dogs and I scramble to the top to admire the incredible views.

Fortunately we have yet to meet a Simonside Duergar, possibly because we are not foolish enough to wander the hills after nightfall. They are malicious creatures who delight in leading unwary travelers from the path, sending them over the cliff’s edge and to certain death.

He wears a lambskin jacket and hat of moss that sports a pheasant feather. He’s a work in progress for an elf project I’m bumbling on with.

And he is todays 29 Faces in May.

  1. I wouldn’t like to meet him in a dark alley! Or a well-lit one, either. I think it’s the mouth that gives him that menacing sneer…anyhow, he’s definitely not your friend, or anybody else’s either.
