For many long years, the Druid Argus has kept the Forest of Everwood safe. His efforts have pitted him against foes great and small. No matter the challenge, Argus has always found the wherewithal to overcome evil. But his researches have of late gone foul. In his obsessive quest to keep the forest at peace and those within it safe from harm, he has sought and gained access to the Liber Mortis. That dread book of the undead has ever been a bane to men. Within its dusty pages resides the knowledge of the other side. Argus's lust has led him astray. The book has corrupted Argus and transformed him into a monstrosity the likes of which the forest realm has not seen in many years. He has bent his power towards evil and turned the forest into a place of dread. Worse, he has bound those of the fey to him and made them creatures of nightmare.
So it is that the Dryad Eva has come to the Halls of Men seeking aid for her kin and her forest.
