RPGPundit Presents #101: Tamlane!

Well, it's time for a new RPGPundit Presents, and I'm almost as proud of #101 as I was of Star Adventurer!

RPGPundit Presents #101: Tamlane is a medieval-authentic adventure for Lion & Dragon or any other OSR or dnd-based RPG.
It's a faerie adventure based on an ancient folk tale. How ancient? Well, the most famous version of it is a poem/song that dates back to at least the start of the 16th century, but that probably means that the tale itself is at least a few centuries older than that. It's old enough that there are multiple English, Irish and Scottish versions of the story (probably welsh versions too).

The core of it has to do with a young daughter of an elderly knight, who ignores warnings and runs off to a wooded area where elves had been sighted. And she runs into one. Trouble ensues.

There's the Fae Queen Titania, the Wild Hunt, a tithe that must be paid to Hell itself, and all kinds of other exciting things.

It's a story that has been told in faerie tale books in the UK for centuries, and later folk musicians made records with it:

And in 1970 Roddy McDowell even made a really schlocky horror movie based on it:
