Spectres of the Corpse Wood

Spectres of Corpse Wood

Corpse Wood has a great many legends attached to it, and one of the more famous concerned the spectral horsemen who rode through its sombre glades. Otto von Drak, angered by the vast numbers of profligate halflings plundering his southern border, instigated a series of mounted border patrols to catch the thieves in the act. When the halflings proved too canny for his enforcers, the Count of Sylvania had an entire company of the riders buried alive in Corpse Wood. The next Hexenacht, these wronged souls returned to the mortal world as hexwraiths, aiming to claim Otto's soul. Unfortunately, that prize had already been taken by the same vampire who had stolen both the count's title and his daughter.[1a]
