The Willing Sacrifice
Within the Dolemwood, we found a group of three individuals. Two wore hooded black cloaks, wielding silver daggers. One, a young woman, was bound to a stone in ritual negligee. Surprising them, we slew one of the men, after which the other surrendered and the woman insisted she be sacrificed according to strict ritual requirements to save her village from a monster apparently named the “Big Chuck”, which lives in a nearby lake and demands a virgin be sacrificed in a ritual involving a silver knife and a copper bowl, or else some unspecified violent harm will come to the village. The monster has not been seen in about 10 years.
