Riona and her friends love playing at being warriors.
They practice blood curdling war cries and crochet chain-mail suits. They dream up scary names for each other and make extra pointy… eh, where have they gone? Sorry. They do get a little distracted sometimes. They might be mighty warriors but they’re children too. They live in a time that is half myth and half imagination - in a Celtic castle (Caislean-Oir) by a Celtic sea (Fraoch-Linn) full of fabulous Celtic creatures (GrRRrr!)
Upstairs there is a court of Lords and Ladies, who tell their children to run along and play
nicely whilst they do grown-up things like dancing fashionable dances and wearing fabulous
Downstairs there are Viking Raiders banging on the door!
Riona and her band are very excited about this. They like nothing better than playing warrior games with the Horrible Hoard in the big boat who call on them every day. The Vikings attack the castle and the children drive them away, but they’re always back to play another game tomorrow. Hooray! Thanks to Riona and her friends the grown-ups never realise the Vikings were there at all.
