Anybody seen "Labyrinth", the Carcassonne mini-series?
« on: September 22, 2013, 12:39:41 PM »
And no, not the film with David Bowie (You remind me of the girl!).

There's a tv mini-series, two parts, called Labyrinth.  The medieval town of Carcassonne figures prominently, and the Cathars are involved.  There's a quest for the Holy Grail and it jumps back and forth from modern times to medieval.  Be aware, the show has some adult themes (violence and naughty stuff), plus I found it to be truly awful.  But again it heavily delves directly into several themes from the game Carc.

I thought it was good.
It jumps between 1209 and 2009.

Each to their own of course, but that's the one.  Based on a book by Kate Mosse.

Hmm I'll check it out... Whether or not I make it all the way through we'll have to wait and see

Even though this is an old topic, I just saw it for the first time and would like to comment.

I haven't seen the mini-series but I have read the book and it's excellent. Kate Mosse is one of my favourite writers. She is an English author who lives half the year in Carcassonne. She specialises in writing books about the stories and legends of the Languedoc set in two different time periods (with related plots).

Labyrinth is the first and most famous of these books and is of the most interest to us as Carcassonne game fans because one of the time periods is medieval (1209) and part of that story is set in the cité of Carcassonne. The other two books in this series are Sepulchre (where the historic time period focus is the late 19th century or early 20th century - I don't remember exactly) and Citadel (where the historical focus is on WWII). These last two books are set in the same region but don't focus on the medieval city of Carcassonne like Labyrinth does. They are still excellent though, as is a a smaller book she wrote called the Winter Ghosts which, while not part of the above series, is still set in the Languedoc.

A copy of "Die Belagerer" for either "Die Katharer" or "Die Kornkreise I"
