The Whaling Woods

At night during high tide the fishermen of Frogston lure whales into the woods. When a whale is entangled in the dead trees, they surround it in their small boats and slay it. Whaling at night is a doubly dangerous activity due to the undead the high tide brings. Along the coast wreckers make trouble by luring passing ships into the woods. Shallows and sandbanks are frequent in the waters around the Whaling Woods.

    Thank you for the campaign inspiration!
