Ravens Hollow

Nestled in a grove of trees that look as if they died from the Touch lies the sad village of Ravens Hollow.  The entire town is embedded in the heart of the Wenchatu Forest, a once lush habitat that befell the curse of the Touch.  While vegetation was roundly unaffected by the disease that spread throughout Zatra, the Wenchatu Forest mostly comprised of Elder and Witchwood trees, which seemed to both be vulnerable to the Touch.

It once was a thriving mill town due to being in close proximity to the Lagavulin River.  But now Ravens Hollow is a dangerous place to visit.  Those who remain have become undesirable towards travelers.  There have been rumors that the citizens will attack any outsider, and few have returned to say they were welcomed with violence.

What's more, the Lagavulin River has become a trickle of a creek for some unknown reason.  Continued production of the mill has gone to beasts of burden, but they are weathering down to the point of being incapable of continuing to turn the great mill stone.  More livestock is not possible because of the recent development of wolf attacks, which have dwindled the number of oxen to virtually wiped out among the ranchers.
