Witch Sight: Modern City – Ancient Vengeance
Since before history, before Mankind ruled the world, older ancient gods roamed the earth. On the east coast of Ireland a warrior creature, The Shannow ruled supreme and was worshipped as a god. But with the coming of the Celtic Saints The Shannow was driven underground to the Otherworld, the realm beneath our own. There The Shannow resided with all else which is no longer welcome in our world – the older races, The Dead and the other Old Gods.
Since that time, those with the Witch Sight, the ability to see the beings of the Otherworld, have learned how to communicate with The Shannow. In Ireland those with the witch sight are a family of women, known as The Morrigan, and over time The Morgains. Over centuries they have called on The Shannow to avenge the deaths of innocents in the cruel world above.
Today in Dublin, Sarah Morgain, the last of her family, reads the Tarot to tourists. When her childhood friend Mary's son is murdered by a gang of drug dealers, Sarah Morgain raises The Shannow to avenge his death.
Witch Sight is a dark fantasy drawing together the myths and supernatural inheritances of the Celtic nations, set in contemporary Dublin.
Witch Sight tells a dark story of the arcane practices which is still alive in this modern metropolis.
The mythology of Witch Sight is based on the Borderland Mythology, underpinning in a number of our projects at Garland Stone, including Borderland, Black Valley and Folk Devil.
