Hex Crawl 23 #254: The Shunned Hills of Hamuparra

Ten hexes northwest, two north of Alakran.


This series of two or three folded ridges surveys the plains around and the heights of the Dhuga to the east, but has an evil reputation. It is said that no enterprise that ends in the Hills of Hamuparra can end well.

A foolish thief, it is told, once put the superstition to the test by escaping from the agents of the law into the Hills. "Yes, I may end up in these Hills," he reasoned, "but my pursuers must also end in the same place as I am if they succeed, and these are the Hills, so they are bound to fail. And as my ultimate goal is to leave the Hills, it cannot be said that my flight is at an end there, so I will prevail!" He did not consider that for them to find a dead thief would also be failure. Indeed they found him face-down, perished from a scorpion bite.
