Fellowship of the Hack
This large swampy area lies about forty leagues south of Voldor Bay in southern Cosdol. Often ten leagues across, this trackless waste is home to a race of twisted, mutated human savages. When the Brandobians began to persecute the other races, the forefathers of these pitiful creatures were expelled from cities and towns for their racial impurity or birth defects and condemned to live in the mires. Over time, it is surmised that a new race was birthed from their tainted blood lines.
Needless to say, the inhabitants of the surrounding areas give this area a wide berth. These bogeymen creep out of the swamp at night and murder unsuspecting victims. The mire is filled with vicous creatrues and many who attempt to cross are never heard from again.
There are a few hardy souls who live in this remote region who make a living by venturing into the mires to harvest rare plants and herbs which are much in demand by the mages of Cosdol.
