The Shadow Pact
Until very recently, the Shadow Pack remained a reactionary group of lycanthrope druids whose main activity seemed to be preventing logging within the Arthfell forest. Organized recruitment drives were extremely rare and used to only follow sweeps conducted by the Fangwatch from the North and deputies of Elberwick’s sheriff from the South. Now, however, they often conduct raids outside of the forest and seem no longer content within its boundaries.
It used to be that the Shadow Pack and the Fangwatch maintained a cease-fire that kept an uneasy but balanced peace in the forest. Often now the Shadow Pack instigates fights with the Fangwatch and raids nearby farms and homesteads using the fight as a diversion. The peace that once was is now all but forgotten, and Arthfell Forest has become a dangerous place to travel.
