LANDMARKS & ENCOUNTERS:
THE PESTILENT FOUNTAIN
 A small cottage, crumbling and almost entirely overgrown with VIOLET NECTAR. It would take some doing to get inside. Probably a day's labour for a human w/ a sword but no machete.
WITCH'S SWAMP
 Home of a solitude-crazed ranger, her only companion a mostly-domesticated THORN WOLF. Hasn't seen another sapient creature in months. Veers between friendly and homicidal.
THE LAKE OF PROMISE
 A BRIMSTONE ORYX graveyard. The bones of thousands of BRIMSTONE ORYX, accumulated over centuries. Several dying BRIMSTONE ORYX. MANTICORE WORM is out in force, worrying at bits of carcass and eying the dying creatures - and you - thoughtfully.
CANDLE HALL
 Paladin on quest to kill FLAIL WIDOW. Domesticated CANOPTIC GOAT her trustworthy sidekick/mount. Completely legitimate in own right, but no matter what they do, will not trust the party any further than she could throw them (possibly literally? has involved paladin code)
