Born from the grotesque coupling of green hags and ogres, the lives of swamp stalkers are as dismal as their boggy homes. Favoring their fathers’ strength but still wielding their mothers’ magic, these half-breeds gain what little joy they can by tormenting others, and use their natural inclination for the water to their advantage. By slinking unseen through the marsh and destroying traveling caravans with their spells, they can snatch any survivors away to horrid fates. Sometimes a swamp stalker lets her prey escape, only to watch the swamp wear her quarry down in a morbid game of cat and mouse that can last for days—and sometimes weeks.
