Colma: City of the Dead
You won't get a childling to willingly go into Colma. Even the most hardened redcap is afraid to enter its confines. Childlings can sense that a special kind of chimeric monster awaits them there... one that feeds on nightmares and other dreams of death. For some reason, wilders and grumps have not been able to see these "hobgoblins," although a few extremely young wilders have noticed blurry outlines as the chimeric monsters attack. Childlings' chimeric forms are torn to shreds by the creatures in seconds, leaving them screaming and totally afraid in their mortal seeming. After one of her favorite childlings, Patrick, was chimerically devoured last winter, Queen Aeron placed a price on hobgoblin heads at 10 dross to its equivalent in a boon. No bogeyman has ever traveled outside the boundaries of Colma, although they have been seen to wait quietly along the edge for childlings to wander into their path. Stories that hobgoblins have been able to steal aboard moving cars somehow and stay until the childling gets home have prompted many childlings to urge their parents not to drive through Colma when in the County of Selkrest.
