The Devil's Cur (UN-B-3894)
The small village of Bryn-Defaid in Powys, Wales - was home to a population that numbered less than 100. To the North stretched the Brecon Beacons and to the West the imposing Black Mountains.

The village was too geographically isolated from the main trade routes to receive travellers, and so the close-knit community were rarely disturbed by the world outside. Continuing to live year by year, much as it had done for 300 years previous.

Most villagers had been raised to be shepherds, as the undulating hills that encircled the village made arable farming impossible. Large flocks of free grazing sheep provided the village with enough food and clothing to sustain them through the harsh winters. Therefore, when a pattern of savage attacks on several free roaming herds began to emerge, the leaders of Bryn-Defaid called an impromptu meeting to try to uncover what was responsible for the attacks on their only form of livelihood.
