The cool night air kissed my skin softly, raising the hair on the backof my neck. Every inch of my being alive and aware of the moonlit woods surrounding me. As I crept over fallen branches and roots every noise seemed amplified. Every rustle of leaves and cracking twig, every whisper of the shifting grass beneath my feet, seemed to yell out into the lurking darkness. Screaming out to any creature or enemy that may be lurking in the inky darkness.
I moved forward with a steady pace, careful not to lose my footing or stray too close to the demonic trees inhabiting these lost woods. The cracking of vicious claw like limbs reaching for me as I past was strong in my ears, filling me with dread. A steady reminder of the dangers lurking here. My hand wrapped firmly around my staff gave me little comfort.
In the distance various creatures called out to me, hungry for my flesh, stomachs yurning to make me their next meal. Winged predators pumping their leathery wings. Snarling beasts howling and nipping at each other.
