When the putrid mother first laid the eggs of swamps, she entrusted her boggards to watch after them and see them grow. Now her loyal warpriests frantically attempt to glean ways to please her from the mad rambles of their bloated priest-kings, and push back violently against any encroachment on the sacred wetlands, real or imagined. Guided only by a capricious demon-goddess and mad babbling, the cult often flails wildly in the search for their proper path.
