A strange old woman who lives in the woods
It’s always been assumed that no mortal dares live in the Haunted Woods, but some travelers report coming upon a strange old woman who lives in a ramshackle cottage deep in the heart of the forest and trades strange gifts for help with her chores. Of course, many who go in search of her find nothing but barren forest where her cottage was said to be, and some are never heard from again…
The party encountered Baba on their journey through the Haunted Woods, and after treating them to a meal she gave them each a strange gift before putting them to sleep. They awoke in a forest clearing with no sign of the old woman or her house anywhere to be seen.
Baba was later revealed by Eabha’s mother to be none other than Sylvania, Queen of the Fae and Eabha’s grandmother.
