Haera’s Thicket use to be a beautiful forest, inhabited by the gypsies and Indigenous people of Celendria Falls. But 40 years ago what was then know as Celendria’s Thicket there lived a gypsy midwife and medicine woman. She was said to have excelled in the Arcane arts but she went to a dark place with her abilities. And suddenly children all over the land began disappearing.
Then one day, about 3 years after the disappearances, Haera the midwife began changing. She became a hermit and shortly after that all the tribes and even the gypsy caravan left the forest. They said it wasn’t safe anymore.
It is said that goblin like children began to populate the area and they were ravenous. Attacking anyone that crossed their path. Eventually the citizens marched into the forest and straight to the tower where Haera kept herself hidden. A battle ensued and she was hung from the window at the top of the tower. Upon arriving the next day to scavenge through her belongings, a poverish hobo screamed and ran back to the town as fast as he could. “Her body its gone its gone! And there are little green men everywhere! Witch! She truly was a witch and she will exact her revenge on us all!!!!!”
Dismissing Wilham as a crazy drunk no one believed him. And went back to their buisness. He now murmurs to himself in the tavern. Speaking of nightmarish animals and little green men led by a giant.
Haeras Thicket is made up of 3 areas
Forest Clearing- It is said a menacing Goblin Knight patrols this area and rumor has it he was once the first child to disappear. The oldest of the children to disappear as well. He went by the name Boon.
And Haera’s Tower. Haera’s tower is protected by a magic fog. It is impossible to see her tower without finding a way to rid the area of its ominous fog. There is also curious blue runes on the side of the tower with no visible entrance inside the tower.
