A Deadly Wit

A Harlequins audio drama

Battling orks, the Harelquins of the Masque of the Fading Dawn begin to worry about their Great Harlequin's reckless behaviour as it threatens danger for them all.

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE
The master of aeldari fiction, Gav Thorpe, returns with a tale of the Harlequins, the most mysterious and intriguing of all their race.

THE STORY
'Monster king, monster king, where are you?
Your house is burning down.
Monster king, monster king, won’t you play?
The Red Swan wants your crown.'

The charismatic Great Harlequin, Duruthiel, leads his troupe on a daring raid of an ork settlement. Urging them forth with bold eccentricity, the Red Swan proclaims fate as the guiding hand for the Masque of the Fading Dawn. But as Skyweaver jetbikes invade the night skies, his attempts to overthrow the great warlord become increasingly reckless. It soon becomes apparent that this is more than just another performance for Duruthiel, but a battle for honour and freedom.

Written by Gav Thorpe. Running time 62 minutes. Performed by Gareth Armstrong, Tim Bruce, Steve Conlin, Emma Gregory & Matthew Hunt
