Old Nan & Rose
Kindly old woman & her charge
The mysterious old woman lives in the forest outside of Fitche. Locals view her her as a mostly harmless eccentric with a penchant for acorns. Old Nan shares her home with a small, towheaded child named Rose.
Rose’s constant companion is Pipkin, the pumpkin-headed leshy tasked with keeping her safe. The two can frequently be spotted playing on the outskirts of town or collecting acorns for Old Nan.
Chari sold a portion of her luck to Old Nan in exchange for information regarding missing caravans from Goldendale (which will probably turn out fine!). Upon their departure Nan warned them to beware Rose’s friends in the forest.
The Dragon Punchers returned to the cottage nearly a year later in search of materials for a ritual to free Micah from Cordyceps’s grip. The old woman, clearly more than she appeared, banished the party from her hut and left Chari with cryptic advice and two crone’s tear phials.
Winds will howl and birds will sing
Gentle Death rules everything
Towns do fall and battles rage
Gentle Death will turn a page
Pox and plagues can do us in
Death gives you a gentle grin
