You are a small party on a secret mission for the Regent, a royal cousin who has ruled since the disappearance of the Queen and her children five years ago. Since then, the Regent has waged war on the kingdom of Guilder who ambushed them. Under the command of the Regent's daughter Carsa, you are following a lead to recover the Queen's amulet, which was stolen from the capital months ago. Passing through Edgewood Forest, you have taken shelter for the night with the ancient order of Druids, who tend the forest and speak to the spirits here. The forest is home to many bandits, so it is good that you are under their protection.
You are the loyal servant of the Regent's daughter, an long-time retainer valued for your loyalty though considered superstitious by some. You are fearful of this secret mission. Something is not right, and omens suggest that this isn't the Regent's will at all.
In addition, something is terribly wrong with the servant girl Magda. She isn't acting normally. You suspect that she has been replaced by a fae changeling, but you are worried that if you say this you will be dismissed as hysterical.
