The town of Shadyelms has always been a peaceful viallage, save for the usual number of goblin raids one expects on the borders of civilization. Strong walls make for strong towns as the old saying goes. That was until a few months ago, when a few outlying farmers began to disappear, their mutilated corpses showing up days or weeks later at the edges of the forest for which the town is named. A week ago, the first disappearance inside the wall occured. Last night, the town guard finally killed one of the abductors. We almost wish he hadn’t. Whatever it is isn’t natural. It has the body of a wolf, and a hawk’s head. Not proportional mind you, the literal head of a hawk. Worse, somehow, it’s got two mismatched human arms attached to it’s shoulders. Old Kervy recognized the tattoo on one of them… Sure enough, it’s from one of the farmers we found a few weeks ago. Somebody is kidnapping people and using their parts to make monsters. We need brave heroes to put an end to this.
