    E.O.W Round #195: Adar Llwch Gwin Bathhouse (Winner: Mhugo)

    E.O.W Round #195:
    E.O.W Round #195: Adar Llwch Gwin Bathhouse (Winner: Mhugo)


    TOPIC: Adar Llwch Gwin Bathhouse


    Brief:

    According to Welsh tradition, the Adar Llwch Gwin were giant birds, similar in kind to the griffin, which were given to a warrior named Drudwas ap Tryffin by his fairy wife. The name derives from the Welsh words llwch ("dust") and gwin ("wine"). These birds were said to understand human speech and to obey whatever command was given to them by their master. However, on one occasion, when Drudwas was about to do battle with the hero Arthur he commanded them to kill the first man to enter the battle. Arthur himself was delayed and the birds immediately turned on Drudwas and tore him to pieces. Later, in medieval Welsh poetry, the phrase Adar Llwch Gwin came to describe all kinds of raptors including hawks, falcons, and, on occasion, brave men.

    Backstory: Corporations have enlarged and enforced their control over the populace and have appropriated the wealth of nations to create their own private paradise. The Adar llwch bathouse was created as an exclusive beautiful rooftop penthouse suite where executives could look over their empire. The name a stark reminder of what happens to those who challenge the rightful heir to power.

    Backstory: Every year, during the cold times, the Adar Lwich Gwins travel north-west to an island of clouds and steam. There the hot pools and thermal springs provide the heat for these creatures to rest and mate. Little is known about that mysterious island, but legends tell it lays on the spine of a giant dragon, which slumbers in the ocean, dreaming of the last of days.

    The Adar Llwch Gwin bathhouse was built by the King. He idolized the creatures and wanted to give them the best. The Adar Llwch Gwin were griffin-like birds which were a part of the King's personal army. Every now and then they had to fight in war. Occasionally, they needed a bath...

    This natural bathhouse is a sacred place where the Adar Lwich Gwins rest after a long time alongside humans. Only these creatures know how to find this place. But once in a while, they take 1 or 2 brave warriors to the bathhouse... to keep the legend alive.

    Adar Llwch Gwin

    Eurig was certain the other boys would never have come if they knew where he was taking them. It is forbidden to witness the early morning bath of the great birds. . . unless of course, you've brought three friends to feed them.

    My final this round.

    Some background : An abandoned welsh cathedral turned into a bathing house by locals for these birdlike creatures.
