"Mucktouched? Rotting Swamps? You'll forgive me if I don't know those.”
Tegan sighs at your ignorance and says, “man, you really were raised under a rock, weren’t you? The Rotting Swamp’s an area hundreds of miles east of here. No Shard has graced that land with its light in centuries. I’ve heard that it was a forest, ages ago, and deep within it was a magnificent city built into the trees, but now… it’s just a swamp. Full of diseases and fungi. Almost nobody can go there and survive.” Tegan pauses to think and continues, “Except the Mucktouched. Apparently they lived there before it decayed, and apparently they had some sort of magical connection to that forest, because now, they’re all insane, twisted. They hate everyone and everything. Some say it’s just because their home was destroyed, but I think they’re bitter. Their magic is just as disgusting as they are, and I can’t wait for the day when they’re all dead.”
Wow, that’s… heavy. Doesn’t tell you much about magic, though. “I know very little of mages and what they are capable of, what sort of magics can they usually perform?”
Tegan blinks. “Well, they can do just about anything. Fireballs, fear, illusions, raising the dead… a better question would be what they *can’t* do. And even then, I’m not sure, and I traveled with a wizard for the better part of a decade. But the Mucktouched… they’re different. Their magic is much more potent, it comes naturally to them.”
How... interesting. Action?
