This piece is to show some of the story line that I imagine for the game.
As the town was growing the people started cutting down the woodland areas surrounded it. Workers would go out start chopping trees for the towns expansion but one night they did not return. In the early hours of the morning a horseman discovered their bodies speared to a tree with tracks leading towards the forest.
This would be set at the start of the game and would lead on to hunters taking on creatures of the forest in an attempt to discover what could have done this. Only to find out that all the creatures are turning hostile die to some unknown being.
