Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

William Wallace

On August 23, 1305, William Wallace was stripped naked and dragged through London at the heels of a horse to Smithfield. He was strangled by hanging but released while still alive, emasculated, eviscerated, and his bowels burnt before him, beheaded then cut into four parts. His preserved head was placed on a pike atop London Bridge. It was later joined by the heads of his brothers, John, and Simon Fraser. His limbs were displayed, separately, in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Berwick upon Tweed, Stirling and Aberdeen.

These injuries were so severe, he is thought to have died from his wounds.

Wallace quotes: "Every man dies. Not every man really lives."

"I'm William Wallace, and the rest of you will be spared. Go back to England and tell them... Scotland is free!"
