From the Dark
The Forlorn Swamp on the southern edge of Hagdan is the home to many strange creatures. Among those are the grippli. The grippli are content to live there, defending their home from the encroachment of civilizations and comfortable that they are far from the mists.
The grippli king believes the grippli should ignore the peril facing the world, that the mists will not harm them. Many younger grippli ignore his beliefs, and struck with wanderlust venture into the outside world seeking answers and ways to protect their swamp.
