This village was once known as the Settlement of Hovel
But ever since a monster took residence there, it scared the residents away and the area is now abandoned
The monster haunts the Well which is an important source of water
Due to this the villagers have not been able to get water from the well and have been forced to drink water from the river that's contaminated by the corpses of the war against the Nilfgaardian Empire
This has made many of the people very ill and they are looking for someone to get rid of the monster so that they can get clean drinking water again.
