Centuries old terror of Notchwood.
Among the many myths and legends of hags and witches in Northern Notchwood, no saga is more disturbing and depraved than that of the Grey Maiden. Stealer of children and eater of souls, this elusive hag is the true inspiration behind stories told to Avencian children to warn about the dangers of the world.
Having stumbled across an ancient hut within Coaldust Marsh, near the Northern tip of Notchwood, the heroes believe they have discovered (and plundered) the home of the Grey Maiden herself. They were forced to flee into the swamps at her return, and it was only when they crossed onto the sanctified island of the forest’s ancestral protectors, the treants, that the pursuit ended.
