Thunderrock, the troll, and D’Athson, the orc, have something in common in that their ancestors made a major switch in policy when they elected to serve the fairy royals. The fairy royals rewarded the trolls and orcs well for deserting their usual ruler, the Chief Witch’s family. She took her rage out on those goblins that defected rather than on the trolls and orcs directly. She insisted this was because she had a special fate in mind for the traitors that needed time to develop. The trolls, orcs and Kingdom generally didn’t see it that way. They saw it as cowardice on the Witch’s part.
FNN have produced many in depth programmes looking at the realm’s past but very much told from the official point of view. These programmes are used in schools and are compulsory viewing for all pupils, regardless of species. Eileen’s books are referred to in these programmes as they are a source of raw material but they are referred to in as brief a manner as possible and are only mentioned at all because Eileen wrote them (there would be repercussions from the Great Lady if she wasn’t credited, she’d make sure of that!).
