Our adventure begins

The last two years have been especially tough here in Hamfield.the winters have grown colder and longer.the snow deeper and the thaw comming later. Last summer a swarm of locust nearly destroyed all of the crops.the villagers where forced to scrape up what few coins they had together to pay The King for his losses.of course it was not nearly enough,so The King took what little crops they had left.many people died from starvation or froze to death last winter. It is mid spring now,and there was hope that this years crops would be bountiful and might save the people from another long,deadly winter.recently,farmers that are nearest to the edge of the Muir woods have found there wells fouled,there livestock dead or missing and there crops plundered.there have been reports of strange creatures lurking in the night and even worse,there are children missing. The villagers have become convinced that there has been a curse put upon Hamfield by Rhianna, a witch that lives in the woods to the east.The Elders sent a letter to the local magistrate Baron Alfred Von Davis,pleading for his help in this matter.unfortunately the only thing that happened was that the Baron sent ten of his soldiers to the village.all they have done since there arrival is harass the people and demand free food and drink,further depleting the villages supplies. Two weeks ago the The Elders and some of the other villagers met at Pipers pub to discuss what could be done about there situation.In a desperate attempt to rid the village of the evil curse of the witch, it was decided to send out a party,made up of the strongest men and boy’s of suitable age to kill her.The party was out fitted with the few swords and any food the villagers could spare,they set out the following day.It was a half days journey to the edge of the Muir woods and then another half days journey to where the witch lives.so even if they camped over night The party should (if all went well) be back by sunset of the third day.It has been thirteen days since they departed and there has been no sign of there return.The Elders have called for another meeting to be held tonight at Pipers pub.
