Description

Exterior:

Here at the water's edge, the trees give way to a rough riverbank littered with pebbles and even the occasional boulder, carried here by the river's rapid flow. The current's calmer about the banks, but were you to be caught in midriver there's little doubt you'd be washed away by the white-capped waters. Fed by snowmelt off the Windy Peaks, the river must flood mightily in the spring; every now and then you spy the stump of a tree that's been torn in half by the waters.

A bend in the river creates a natural respite from the swift currents, and it's here that a sturdy jetty has been erected. It's clear that this was built before Hawkethorne was founded, but you're not sure exactly by who. The fact that it's still standing despite its age and the water's attempts to erode it away are testament to its craftsmanship, though. One way or the other, it seems to have once been repurposed by the folk of Hawkethorne, with logs and scraps of rotting rope lying here and there; unfortunately, with recent events as they are, the jetty has fallen into disuse once more.

Light at the end of the old elven jetty catches your attention; someone lit a fire in one of the stonework's many potholes, creating a makeshift firepit. You could approach Hinata and his posse, if you like.

Interior:

The kitsune wildlings have set up camp on the old stone jetty, a moss-grown structure of ancient pale elf make. A large pothole in the jetty has been repurposed into a makeshift firepit, and they've put together a decent lean-to against one of the nearby trees. It doesn't look comfortable, but at least it'll keep off the miserable Marches rain. Unfortunately for the wildlings, their boat-building skills are nowhere near their capabilities of shelter construction — an incomplete raft lies on one side of the jetty, a half-hearted attempt to remedy their situation.

Huddled in the dark, rats in a... well, the forest's not quite a maze for the likes of them, but it's not much better from where they stand. Hinata and his two underlings are at least functional in body, if a little pinched-looking. Morale, though, is rather wanting, judging by the general air of depression which hangs around all three of the furred fox-people.

There's no sign of the little camp that once stood here. With the alraune removed from the bridge, Hinata and his underlings must have returned home to the Frostwood. There's nothing for you here now, at least in that regard.

Interaction

Having given the Forest Kitsune the sustenance they need, the Champion will be able to visit their camp during the night such that they will be able to talk to them under more peaceful circumstances and provide more opportunities for "Feeding".

Notes

No mention of the camp's presence will appear until the Forest Kitsune tell you where it is located after the Champion had shared with them food or essence.
