Many think the corruption at the heart of the Doommeet Coven to the west is beginning to spread to this region. Plants are smaller and less healthy and it seems that more areas fail to grow any plant life each passing year.
To the southeast are nearly a dozen ancient barrows that glow with a baleful, blue light when the moon is full and on both solstices. Those unfortunate to find themselves in the area tell stories of vile spirits, terrible wailing, and shadowy winged horrors haunting the sky.
To the northwest is a large pack of gnolls nearly 70 strong. A druid of Melora, Lars Proknow (DnD 5: Level 2 Male Half-Elf Circle of the Moon Druid; DnD B/X: Level 2 Magic-User), has been keeping an eye on the growing threat and is planning to head toward Hommlet to report his concern's to Madeira Romney.
Terrain is filled with unhealthy grass and large patches of little to know vegetation with barrows in the southeast..
