Grove of Ash
A Water Weird is an elemental, spirit creature that fiercely protects its home.
“Weird as strange, weird as supernatural, weird as destiny. Is it a sentinel set here by sorcery, or sea-spawn seeking supper? We only know this worm of water waits unseen within pools, lurking until it can lash out, entwine around a victim, and drag them down to their destiny, a watery death. And how does one fight it? Do the waves fear swords? Can hammers crush currents? You can beat it back for a time, but it’ll rise again from its pool as if unharmed; sages say only sorcery or spiritual powers suffice to slay it.”
