The Ruins of Castle Moorfathom
My name? No one’s had need to refer to me. I’ve done so long without one. You may call me what you will.
The Hermit lives alone in the Vesve Forest. He is an ancient creature with a beard full of dried leaves. His visions guided the adventurers in their quest to defeat Duke Adrian. First, The Hermit helped the adventurers lose their shadow, The Duke’s Man, in the dungeons below the ruined outpost. Second, he told them how to avoid the Duke’s troops and enter his stronghold in the mountains undetected.
That’s the longest path I can see down, and that’s how far. Gut root?
