Sometime during the day, more footsteps could be heard approaching the banks of the River Luna. A paper is placed down by a woman, and a rock planted on top of it to keep it in place like the previous paper, the paper reads as follows:

Declaration of War

To the degenerations of Chauntea, your attempts on my life have failed, and I have returned to the hunt stronger, pray to Malar or whatever being you wish for for mercy, for I shall give you none.

Screams of agony, enraged shouts and horrible cries of bereavement would haunt those passing through the southern forest in the dead of night in recent days, originating most likely from deeper within the dense forest.

Those paying heed would be able to discern the words being shouted and repeated over and over again:

"Silver! Musushuu!"

The shoutings would die out after a while only to return the following night.

A lone shadow slinks about the southern forests in the night, leaving traces only skilled trackers would be able to discover. The shadows purpose unknown, though the tracks are more common in the deeper parts of the forest.

At some point in the afternoon, footsteps can be heard approaching a familiar spot, and a note left, after the task is done footsteps can then be heard wondering off.

Travelers gifted with perceptive eyes would notice that a significant portion of Vallaki's southern forests has very subtly changed. Only the most keen of trackers and/or those who perhaps live in the wilderness would observe a certain unnatural pattern to the flora.

Groves are a tad more well-maintained. Berry bushes are somewhat tidied up. Tracks of both prey and predator alike are somewhat covered by moved soil and leaves. Animal scratches on the bark of trees are masked with man-made cuts. Every recent campfire is promptly dismantled and its remains safely disposed of. The sounds of animals are loud and proud, as if the local fauna is finally allowed to thrive a bit.

Needless to say, those able to observe all these subtle features would be correct to assume there is something or someone tending to the local woods.


Upon certain misty nights, sharp-eyed bypassers would spot a hooded figure resting at well-camouflaged camps in such forest.

Observant individuals might notice a few trees cut down in the forest by the bank of the Luna River and the steady smoke of a campfire rising above the treeline. Heavy footprints of large boots travel across the mud, someone large is making camp on the wooded bank.

After receiving a tip from a woman dressed in white, the elves do a regular patrol of the Southern Forests. As they approach the ruins near the river Luna, they discover evidence of what seems to be a necromantic ritual. Multiple skulls, body parts, a bowl of blood and a beheaded corpse. They also take notice of ash being used nearby. They would later report their findings in the elven settlement and spend many hours discussing the implications of such a sighting.

In the middle of the night screams and pleas for mercy can be heard coming from the old ruined outpost before the area suddenly becomes eerily silent. There are no sightings of anyone leaving the outpost after some time.

Strange rumours begin to spread of sightings of enraged forest spirits and creatures. Hushed whispers speak of blighted deer and walking trees in the southern forests. Locals seem to be avoiding the forest path, using the city roads instead.

Animals lie dead and stripped of all fur. Even the smallest creatures butchered for their skin, their meat wastefully left behind. Tree stumps dot the forest having been chopped down and small, controlled burn piles billow smoke into the sky throughout the forest.

A tall, hooded elf garbed in white armor could regularly been seen tending to some parts of the southern forests near Degannwy. Setting up animal feeders in some places to offer help to whichever small creatures might still roam the forests during the cold winter months.

Some symbols could be seen hanging from, or carefully carved into some of the trees as well. A promise to travelers that they are watched over

Those who wander the Southern Forest may hear the sound of soil being hewn and tilled throughout the day, the sounds of crackling fire none too far from the elf clearing the remnants of decay. Though the threat of Avalan has passed, it will take time for new life to take root in the soil of the Southern Forests.

As the month of June begins, those traversing the Southern Forest at night may hear faint, distant, animalistic howls that eerily resonate in synchronization. Moreover, the number of slaughtered forest creatures starts to slowly increase.

Some may have seen and passed by a halfling girl, wandering about in a small section of the southern woods along the road. She was scouring the ground all about the entire day, as if looking for something...

Chanting, yelling, fighting can be heard throughout the night until noon the next day.. until the birds and quietness return.

A goat-legged tiefling comes back to a ruined fort in the Southern woods. He can only assume the elves nearby stole his wood and destroyed his camp. He posts a notice outside the Autumn Grove:

A cave full of bandits are left utterly slaughtered as a two figures, one clad in black and another draped in red, turn over every stone in pursuit answers.  None seemed to be had this night.

A commotion during the night causes a stir of activity deep within the settlements of the southern woods. Whispers among the winds tell tale of a melancholic whistle predating the events of the evening.

In the southern forest two figures, human at sight and in heavy armor one silvered and one golden, can be seen moving two corpses from in front of the entrance of Degannwy inside the settlement. One of them leave a note inside Nant Gaerwyn and at sight for everyone.

Upon the winding trajectory guiding one toward the southern woodlands, the meandering path reveals a subtle deviation, where the dancing glow of torches delicately discloses the existence of a camp.
Unassuming and devoid of elaborate fortifications, this enclave is marked by modest wooden barriers demarcating its boundaries. Within this encampment, a scattering of tents unfolds, accompanied by a central table and a sparse collection of weapon racks adorned with arms.

The unmistakable insignia proclaiming its allegiance reads, "The Obsidian Claw."



... However ...


Throughout the nocturnal hours, echoes of conflict reverberate as warbands engage in fierce clashes, lending an unsettling symphony to the silent night.
At dawn's revelation, the landscape bears the grim testimony of this violent encounter, its soil marred by the macabre residue of blood and gore, sporadic armaments strewn as poignant artifacts of the tumult.

Curiously untouched by the chaos that befell the periphery, the camp maintains an eerie tranquility, if it wasn't for a foreboding token that manifests in the form of decapitated head impaled upon a rack, its dark silhouette casting a shadow upon the scene. An enigmatic note accompanies this harbinger, its contents shrouded in mystery.

In the ensuing day, the Company was seen meticulously disassembling and packing its belongings. A departure steeped in purpose, the reasons behind which remain veiled in secrecy.

The last few nights have found themselves rather tireless, as shouts, discussions, and bonfires burn outside of Degannwy...

In the early morning, one would find bodies of wolves and deers skinned alike. Surrounding them would be signs of battle, bodies of were' creatures and humanoids alike. All of which, have been skinned as well. Whatever or Whoever did this was brutal to nature, man, and the unnatural alike.
