Scarecrows of Nevermore
The adventurers encountered Mulkin in the deserted village of Nevermore. He claimed to be a witch hunter, hot on the trail of one of the most dangerous witches to walk on Okknos.
When Okabe showed him a nightmare hair he found on the perimeter of the village, Mulkin was convinced the trouble at Nevermore was due to a powerful witch. He told the heroes that with the nightmare hair he may be able to manufacture a weapon that could give them the edge they needed over the witch.
The heroes gave Mulkin the hair and he told them to visit him in two days in the town of Choron.
