Skull & Shackles
Thought to have once been a lush forest home to numerous woodland creatures, the small stretch of trees known as Steirwood now plays host to the majority of the hordes of undead that aimlessly roam Raugsmauda’s Reach. The lich creates many of her necromantic horrors using victims she captures on her monthly hunts, though some of the terrible creatures that wander Steirwood resemble animals that perhaps once populated the isle or distant lands, including bovine ghasts, elephantine skeletons, and serpentine ghouls. Regardless of their exact origins, these undead beasts and others now dwell strictly within the rotting forest. The winding trees with their pallid bark and twisted branches seem to absorb the unnatural taint of the land itself, and stray roots with barbed ends spontaneously animate to gore and consume zombie animals that wander too close.
