"There are black zones of shadow close to our daily paths ..." HPL wrote of strange geometries that drive people mad - and open gateways for untold horrors to creep into our little world. On Halloween Island is a mysterious place spoken of only in whispers. The Desolate Forest. Something happened there to warp the healthy biome out of shape. It is rumoured that strange spirits haunt it. Or are they beings from another planet - or another dimension? Odd things tend to happen around midnight. And it is nearly always midnight in the Desolate Forest. Like any haunted spot worth the name, the Desolate Forest offers visitors just a hint of danger. Enough to give us a bit of a chill, without arousing the wolves within us to full wakefulness. Ghosts are hard to hit anyway, so heavy weapons and armor aren't really necessary. Run fast if anything tries to grab you. Keep a campfire handy.
