“I hope your feeling doesn’t turn out to be wrong.”

The Eight Arches kit launches today. The minstrel’s story continues with chapter 3, entitled: ‘Whispering Bard’s mishap or the cook who saved the day’.

And this is how it all began:

Once upon a time, long, long ago, in a country as far away or as close as your imagination allows (I don’t know where you call home), there lived the heavy-drinking and rowdy knight named Cuthbert. He once owned a proud castle, but unhappily was short of money, and now it was so ramshackle and dilapidated that it brought him no joy to live there.

Cuthbert didn’t have much to his name except for a spindly horse, a puny donkey and a squire named Edwin.
