The characters have made camp, close to a road, when they begin to see strange lights and hear a cry for help.
An angry, baleful female ghost haunts the clearing. The presence of the group nearby makes her attempt to lure them to their doom.
The clearing is haunted. Years ago, Lady Brianna Hawthorne, the daughter of Baron Kletus Hawthorne had her carriage diverted from the road where she was murdered. Her fiancee, Duke Albrecht Kirk was responsible, after he found out that Brianna had poisoned his original intended, Lady Meleena Napier. The Duke had men loyal to him assigned to the carriage and paid them handsomely for the gruesome deed.
The only way to completely destroy Brianna is to find a strange tree nearby where her remains have stuffed. They must be salted and burnt.
