Halloween Treat: Wolf of Narr for Lamentations of the Flame Princess

For the past three moons a vicious animal has been stalking the farms around the village of Narr. And in that time 3 cows, 2 mules, 1 horse, and 3 dogs fell victim to it. However, on the first night of this month's full moon, Jesper Connick, a farmer on the southern border of Narr was found dead on his porch by two of his paid hands that were helping with the harvest. Currently, Preacher Lonn Tillswell, a Priest of the Sunbringer, and the village Sheriff, Enya McDuff, are investigating the gruesome killing.

Already rumors have reached the Bullfinch Public House that Connick was torn apart and some villagers have already decided that it's the work of the Green Briar Travelling Road Show that rolled into the village nine days ago. The Sheriff is doing his best to calm the village folk, especially after hearing word that Yvitra Demeter, the local wise woman, fell ill after being asked to look at Jesper's body. 

Tensions are high and McDuff has noticed that the attacks all have occurred on the nights of the full moon for the last several months and she is looking for anyone to turn to for help.

The village and the farmlands surrounding it encompass about 6 square miles of mostly moors with forest on its northern border. It is a day's ride from the Hexenschulle, the Imperial school of wizardry which hosts some of the faculty and students during their holidays.

The creature that the village is facing is a Werewolf who made a pact with Chernobog and was given a belt that allows him to assume the form of a hybrid monstrosity on the three nights of the full moon. The werewolf's name is Genevieve Dubois, a 4th-year student of the Hexenschulle who had begun an affair with one of her professors, Meritus Hammit. When she told Professor Hammit she was pregnant, he used his skill with alchemy to cause a miscarriage and then fabricated evidence that she had broken into his alchemical store, causing her to be expelled. Her grief eventually turned to a craving for retribution and she made her pact with Chernobog. She has spent the last three months learning to use her new magic and is preparing for next month when Hammit will holiday in Narr.
