Lost, the Shapeshifting Village
“The Misplaced Village” is a classic Brelish folktale that has retained its appeal for hundreds of years. The story opens in a town plagued by bandits and war. Into this troubled place wanders a sympathetic traveler, who offers to hide the community from its enemies. Beleaguered and desperate to survive, the villagers embrace his offer.
As the stranger weaves a mighty spell, one of the farmers remembers an ancient proverb: “Beware the gifts of the Traveler.” He tries to stop the ritual, but he is too late. The Traveler is as good as his word: From that day to this, no enemy has found the village—nor has anyone else.
