Crusaders and Marauders
Before the perversion of Vanaireole Deezees and his random acts of magical experimentation upon the unwilling denizens within this fey wild forest, it was formerly known as Wisdom Woods. Many months ago it was an enchanting and beautiful copse that hugged either side of the south western portion of the King’s Road. Though locals have affectionately renamed the road as the Cursed Trail due to all the troubles that seem to befall any traveler from Fallcrest or Winterhaven who travel it in search of the farming village – now a boom town of sorts due to the recent gold mine find – Meadowbrook.
The Wicked Woods which surrounds the Cursed Trail is teeming with all manner of deadly and dangerous beasts from blood sucking Stirges to ravenous Wolves to territoral Owl Bears to angry Ogres. The most common difficulty that outsiders encounter as they travel the trail to Meadowbrook is almost near constant harrassment by members of the Rat Fang Gang who seem to set upon any traveler that is not a Goblin. Some have even claimed that this vicious gang has enlisted the aid of an army of pillaging and plundering Hill Giants. Even worse, though they had been keeping to themselves for almost a decade, a small family of Green Dragons have had their ire raised due to all the recent activity.
Will the woods remain wicked or is their someone or some group of heroes who would be willing to make the forest and trail safe to travel again? – Brutal Brom
