To Serve and Protect?
Mutilated bitter treeman
Living in Hollow’s Heart (incorrectly called Hollow Heart by many) Old Scorchbark was once an ally , aloof and stern but an ally nonetheless , of the people of Dramshae helping them to achieve sustainable farming practices , allowing them to harvest modern amounts of timber , and protecting them from dangerous beasts – and one time famously from a hobgoblin raid . His encounter with a mysterious elf wielding a burning blade changed all that . Badly wounded the villagers could hear Scorchbark’s curses and cries echoing like thunder for weeks . After that he was no longer as much of a friend to people of Dramshae . He destroyed their gristmill and chased off any who entered the woods . Once any who approached him with respect could benefit from his wise council but no more – Scrochbark still seems to attack any threats to the village but he’s no longer interested in the company of the villagers .
