An isolated town along the North Stir, Essen sits in an unenviable place between the portion of the Great Forest known as the Dead Wood on the west, the Eerie Downs on the East, and the Hel Fenn across the river to the south. Under the rule of the Margrave Gotthold Schurz, Essen has the reputation as the most haunted village in the Empire. Tavern tales say that Ghosts are as common on the streets as people, that Zombies till the fields, and Sylvanian Vampires hunt openly in Essen.[1a]

Though these are vast exaggerations of the actual situation, there is no doubt that Essen has been threatened in the past by the Restless Dead.[1a]
