New Port Talbot's Requiem
Before The Mourningwood family decided to found their works on the banks of the Leth or settle their workers about it there was Blasedale. The small town can be traced back to the Norman era at least by the castle built on “the Hump” a smaller hill nestling at the foot of the “Black ring” hills encircling New Port Talbot.
Not truly a part of New Port Talbot, Blasedale is about ten miles from the Rack. In times gone it has been a sleepy rural village, Home to Industrialists and their estates and is now becoming a commuter town for the few upper middle-class that can escape to the country.
Being about fifteen minutes from the rack by car it is thought that some older kindred have havens or boltholes out in the area of Blasedale though there are no “Haunted” or Abandoned houses out this far. Possibly an abandoned/deralict farm.
