The Druid Shoak
Evil Possessed Druid Responsible for Dire Curse
The Druid Shoak is responsible for the Dire Curse in the King’s Forest, the death of the villagers at Dhedluk, and the corruption of the druid Tower. His capture and experimentation on a Dire Wraith is believed to be what caused the curse.
When the players found the Wraith, it was theorized that the remaining members of the Shoak family are also Dire Wraiths, and are still at The Haunted Halls.
Druid Shoak was defeated by the players at the Druid Tower in Dhedluk, and the Dire Curse was lifted when the captured Wraith was defeated.
