Ecological information

The Crispvale Thicket is located in the northeast of the Dwendalian Empire, on the southwest quadrant of the crossroads between the Crispvale Roadway and the Glory Run Road. It is a small grouping of pine trees.[1] In 835 PD, a small, disused farmhouse was located 200 feet outside the treeline.[2] The area northeast of the thicket is rocky.[3]

Small farmhouse[edit | edit source]

The one-story farmhouse's roof is partially collapsed, the door hanging off its hinges, and the glass windows are broken, with remaining shards of glass still sticking up from the panes.[2] Inside is a weathered mantle of wood and stone over a fireplace, with a small iron symbol of Pelor on it.[4] The furniture inside was damaged, dusty, and burned in places, and the interior smelled of mildow and rot. The party found five unused torches, a well-made if rusted handaxe, and a broken lantern, from which Nott took the still-good lantern oil.[5]

The land around the house was inhabited by carnivorous ankhegs.[6]

Known inhabitants[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

Campaign 2[edit | edit source]

While the Mighty Nein and Keg were heading north from Hupperdook towards Shadycreek Run in an effort to catch the Iron Shepherds and rescue Jester, Fjord, and Yasha from enslavement, they decided to not take the path through the thicket towards the crossroads but instead take the presumed quicker path around it. In the process, they discovered the farmhouse,[8] and shortly after were then attacked by ankhegs.[9]
