Welcome to Sandpoint
While many forests in Varisia bear dark reputations, Ashwood’s is legendary. Everyone within a hundred miles claims to have a relative or friend of a friend who personally encountered a ghost, werewolf, or other spook within the wood’s brooding borders.
Yet while locals might boast excitedly and exchange tales by day, at night they bar their doors and pile firewood high. The Church of Erastil takes these stories particularly seriously, and worshipers of Old Deadeye are frequently seen patrolling the dells and towns along the forest’s ragged edge, making sure the dark creatures within its borders stay there.
